Wordless Wednesday….. A Favourite Place

Location:- Cromarty, on the Cromarty Firth, The Black Isle, Ross & Cromarty, Scotland

Cromarty and Cromarty Firth are perhaps associated with sever weather and Gales as announced on the daily Shipping Forecast Broadcasts.  But from my experience also a  rather amenable Scottish Location.

Wordless Wednesday…a new month ( and a new Season ? )

COCKERHAM-sundown

Location:-  Cockerham Sands, Morecambe Bay, Lancashire

The first day of a new month.  September, the month that the Meteorological Office define, for us in the northern hemisphere, as the start of autumn.  Not sure I agree with them, their desire to break a year down into 4 equal segments ignores natures own cycle.

That said, I do find that the light from now on changes, softer, surprisingly warmer, particularly in the evenings and if you get the opportunity to be by the west coast… then a sunset glow could be your reward.

One location never seems to disappoint, is Cockerham Sands.  At the mouth of the River Lune, marked by the squat Lune Light, which marks where the Lune enters the expanse of Morecambe Bay.  You also get a double bonus, for as the tide rushes in, and it does come in fast, in rush waders and wildfowl that have been feeding on the mud flats. 

Rather a lot of words for Wordless Wednesday, but I thought it worth it.  Well it is one of my Favourite Places

The year may be moving along at a pace but we still need to….

Warkworth-Castle

Location:-  Warkworth Castle, Northumberland

A defensive Castle built in a crook in the River Coquet close to the Northumberland coast.  It is suspected that it is much older, but usually dated to the 12th century, built on the instruction of Prince Henry of Scotland the Earl of Northumberland.
