Coastal Northumberland

The weather was beautiful today... cold, but sunny. It's nice to see a bit of sun at this time of year, so I took my parents for a drive to a few coastal towns and villages in Northumberland, about an hour from my home. My Dad bought us a lovely fish & chip lunch, and while we walked it off I took a few photos (actually, the first photo is a light fitting in the fish restaurant )...

Another excellent series Mike. I enjoy the " eerie " atmosphere you have been getting in your beach scene images with having a lack of people in them. Reminds me of a sci-fi flick where the population just disappears. Very well taken buddy.

Thank you, Pete - you're very kind

In winter, some of the places I've been photographing up here are generally very quiet, with few visitors - especially on weekdays.

Funnily enough, Dawdon Beach (in Seaham, not far from me) was used in filming the opening minutes of "Alien 3"

A terrific series with some great photos - it's always enjoyable to see new (to me) places. Some years ago, I was in London for business - I had some enjoyable sightseeing in the city, but that's as far as I got.

Thanks, Jer

I'm originally from the North East, but lived and worked in London and the South East for 26 years. I came back here for good in late 2014 to enjoy a less stressful lifestyle, and I'm frequently rediscovering places I remember from my childhood. Occasionally - just very occasionally - I miss the hustle and bustle of London (and I definitely miss the range of excellent restaurants!), but mostly I love being back home. There's an awful lot to like about this part of the country - some of which I didn't really appreciate until I'd been away for so long
