Northumberland Coastal scenes - around Bamburgh

A short break from home, based at Seahouses and moving up and down the coast from there. Only had a couple of days, so didn't get too far, but was quite lucky with the weather. The light was really bright at times, an opportunity to try out the K-1's exposure bracketing option. All with the FA 28-105. All comments welcome!

Excellent set, I really enjoyed looking at all of them and they give a great impression of the spectacular conditions and views there. If I had to pick one favourite itd be 4, mainly based on the composition giving the waves the main stage and keeping the viewer guessing whether there is any land at all at the bottom of the frame or if you could be approaching from the open seas, dramatic stuff indeed.

These all work. Well photographed.

Best regards

Nice compositions particularly on 2, 3 & 6 but the set is spoiled for me by the flare coming more-or-less from the castle direction.
I suppose if you are at a particular location at a particular time of day, you can only photograph what you see at that time.

+1 for all the positive comments above. That 28 - 105 is a great lens for work like this. Well done.
Be well, stay safe.

No. 4 for me, for the shapes and sense of movement in the waves. More a seascape than a landscape...

Is that really flare in the direction of the castle, or is it haze from spray thrown up by the breaking waves?

Hard to choose a favourite from these, they are all very good.

Lovely set and another reminder that it's an area we need to visit

All great shots but no.4 really does stand out - I think it's the simplicity coupled with the classic "rule of thirds" composition

I find that the best time at Bamburgh is sunrise/sunset but that is easy for me to say as it is in my backyard.
I must get out up there more.
