Rocks above Craster

I've always liked this shot of rocks on the shore below Dunstanburgh Castle walking up from Craster. I just think the way the sea has drastically changed the colours is quite amazing. Have a good day.

Iceland, temperatutre extremes

I love the way these volcanic steam outlets are in front of the snow covered mountains at Hverir in Iceland. Talk about extremes in temperature. Have a great day now.

Llamas in Northumberland

Not taken in the Andes but in the hamlet of Detchant just down the road from us. The farmer uses them for keeping the foxes away from his free range chickens. Enjoy your day now.

Belford in the snow.

This was the village when the snow started early one morning last year. Doris our cocker spaniel seems bemused! Have a great day.

Back to the Caribbean this morning. I walked about two hundred yards to get this picture on coral lumps and as you can see I slipped when I took it. Hence the reason the sea is sloping! Have a great day

Landing on Staffa

Here we all are landing on Staffa. Zodiacs really are the way to explore when you're cruising. I just couldn't do any of those 2000 people on ship cruises I'm afraid! Have a lovely day now.

Brittany Parliament Buidling

Seal Pup, Farne Islands

This seal pup was taken on Longstone one of the Farne Islands. I was supposed to be going out there today to photograph the wardens marking the new born pups but the wind is too strong and we can't get out to the islands. Have good day now.

Tobago Cays

This is Royal Clipper anchored off the Tobago Cays. As it's an awful day in  Northumberland I thought I'd put this on. Have a great day now.

These are the Sperrin Mountains in County Tyrone. When we set off it was a beautiful sunny day by the time we got to the top this happened! Have a great day yourself now.
