Each year I aim to get somewhere new by the coast to add to my portfolio.
This year it was the turn of Northumberland.  The trip however was only part photography based so I had to slim down my kit.
The minimum I will take on a landscape job.

The conditions changed dramatically through the week from blue skies to moody storm clouds.  The only constant was a relatively strong wind which kept things moving and the temperature a little lower than expected.

We based ourselves at Seahouses and traveled along the coast from there venturing up to Holy Island where the coastline is sandy and down to Dunstanburgh where there are boulders strewn on the beach not dissimilar to dinosaur eggs.

Most of the compositions ended up with me taking control of the exposure and slowing things down a little to create some mood and atmosphere.  This also meant that most of the time the camera was firmly attached to the tripod.

Here are a few of my favourites from the trip.
