Revisited Saint Margaret’s on Cliffe, on a calm Sunday afternoon. My cousin Steven was in tow, and a good photo subject! Beats some of the exile I’ve experienced whilst travelling around.

Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne

Spent the evening walking around Quayside by the River Tyne in Newcastle. The main feature of Quayside is the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, which tilts to allow boats to go under. I’ve left some images higher resolution to take in the full detail of the scenes.

Alnmouth is a quaint village just off the A1058 coastal highway. The golden sand beach, is one of the best around that I’ve seen, with many families out on this fine autumn day.

Alnwick Castle

Alnwick Castle in Northhumberland a medievel castle, recently seen in some Harry Potter films. Photographic wise, it was quite limiting – lack of trees, and harsh midday sun. The nearby Alnwick Gardens looked splendid from the outside, but couldn’t justify another £9 charge to get in there also! The inside library, art room and dining room were great, however a strict non-photography rule was in place – This has been the tradition, however most other castles now allow photography inside.

Wast Water, Lake District

Wast Water is one of the best scenes in the lake districts (recently voted the best scene in the UK, by the people!) – steep hill faces, a view of England’s tallest peak – Scafell Pike. Just a shame there were low clouds obstructing the view đŸ˜‰

Ullswater, Lake District National Park

Posted in Landscape, Travel at 7:30 pm by Warren Williams

Ullswater was the first lake seen from entering the impressive Lake District from Penrith in the North East after a 90min drive from Newcastle. The weather was not obliging, so most photo opportunities were very limiting. After 3 hours spent walking around the hills, waterfalls and fields there was a few minutes of sunshine.
