Around the lake

The cottage where we stayed in Northumberland last week is close to a tree-lined lake. A walk around can't fail to find something to photograph, even if it isn't the lake.

Northumberland Coast

Whilst in Northumberland we took a few bracing hikes along the coast ...

Abandonded Cars

Whilst staying in Northumberland I came across an almost derelict barn that, subsequently, I found out was used as a hangar for a local landowner's light aircraft. It now houses two abandoned cars - a Ford Capri Ghia and a Reliant three-wheeler. I spent an enjoyable couple of hours taking these photographs - a little different from my more usual landscapes. Additionally there were several animal skulls adorning the walls. I understand that this was used as a film location last summer.
