A place for my occasional musings on photography and a noticeboard for new work.

Dunstanburgh Castle is a somewhat hackneyed subject - but, when one's there, it's irresistible. Last week I was staying nearby so took several opportunities to visit both early and late in the day. The first image below was at the time of the 'SuperMoon' which rose over the castle in the middle of the photograph. Unfortunately the distant cloud just beat it so the moon was sadly not revealed. The next two were soon after sunrise a few days later whilst the last two were one more day later just before and then after sunset. The way the sky changes so dramatically over such a short period is a thing of wonder. The timing of the visits and the camera positions were planned with the aid of 'The Photographer's Ephemeris' - an invaluable tool when it comes to needing to know sunset, sunrise, moonset and moonrise times and positions. Unfortunately the app can't help with what clouds will or won't be present ... !
