Bamburgh Dawn

By martinl  
Just returned from a few days camping with the family up near Bamburgh.

Managed a few trips out with camera, and this was from Monday morning before sunrise at Bamburgh beach. Not a bad morning this, and the conditions were probably the best whilst we were there!

You can also see the Farne Islands on the horizon too.

A few more to come from our little break, but this will do to start with.

Have a great weekend everyone.
