A bright start to the year; high cloud and sunshine, a cold wind whipping up the surf, oystercatchers calling and the tail end of a rainbow.
Looking south from Spittal past Seahouse Farm, the island of Lindisfarne shows as a small pimple on the horizon
Wind-whipped surf on Cocklawburn beach – a vast expanse of sand at low tide
Turning for home through a tunnel of wind-sculpted sycamores
A flight of oystercatchers over pasture next to the railway line
The land rises gently away from the coast
Nearly home – looking down to Spittal prom
The headline photo is the view back down to Spittal and Berwick.
