Clouds and a Castle

Continuing with my series of photographs that were taken in Northumberland, the first two pictures are coastline shots, taken during some very stormy weather, whilst the last is a photograph of one of the many iconic buildings that can be found in the county

The first photograph has got some very interesting clouds shapes, under which there were showers out to sea. This squall never really reached inland, but at one point the wind did gather apace and we thought a deluge was coming. The clouds are, for the most part, as they were seen, aside from a little bit of dehaze added on a graduated filter from the top of the frame down to the horizon.

The second image was taken a little further down the coast and depicts the sky getting really dark over the grass-covered sand dunes, promising some dire weather. Once again apart from a little burning-in, the clouds are virtually untouched.

The final picture was taken on the path up to the iconic castle at Lindisfarne. The fence made a useful lead-in tool guiding the viewer up to the castle. This image was taken the day after the first two, and as you can see by the sky, it was a lovely day. That’s the UK weather for you.
