Quote: Bamburgh Suprise

Misleading title - I thought you had some kind of surprise in a Bamburgh picture, but it turns out to be a sunrise, LOL!

Great shot, BTW. I was here a few times last week, and nothing but greyness all around, but this looks great! Love the sky, the foreground, everything!

Wicked colours John,the light reflecting on the rocks is the touch of glamor for me.I see a little light halo around the castle in the bg though but that big sky makes up for it.

Fabulous image John one of your best ever and a very good image indeed from this well photographed castle. Looks like a stage curtain being drawn across the sky to reveal a wonderful light.
