Few images from the workshop I did up in Northumbria this weekend. The Sunrise shot of Bamburgh Castle is straight out of camera, no editing at all. The sunrise was truly that colour and was totally amazing. It lasted about 10 minutes before calming down.

Northumbria is a wonderful place to visit and photograph and you've got some excellent shots here. I like the way you look for parts of a landscape rather than trying to cram it all into one image. I also like your wider, graphic shots.
Best regards, John

Well done Richard you have yourself some great shots there.
Please do not show them to many people we like to keep it to ourselves

Gosh some absolute beauties there. That Bamburgh castle sunrise must have been awesome to have watched. A really top set!

Some great shots! The sunrise is spectacular.
Personally I am not a fan of the long exposure seas, but I do like the beach hut photo.

Did you need your thermals?

Northumberland is indeed one of England's most beautiful counties - and its not over run with tourist. So like Geordie says keep quiet about it.
That's an excellent set of images you created on your workshop. I'm glad you were treated to some good light. Incidentally the county is Northumberland - Northumbria is the whole North East region, including Co. Durham, Cleveland and parts of North Yorkshire.

Thermal Long Johns were worn and much appreciated!,

Very nice set Richard - especially the 2 sunrise shots. I am yet to get anywhere near as good a shot as either of these of Bamburgh. I have seen it several times with a sky similar to your second shot but I have never seen anything like the colour in your first one - stunningly beautiful. Whenever I have seen a good sunrise there the tide has unfortunately always been out but I do intend another trip this year during Puffin season - so will try again.

I also like the Dunstanburgh shot very much but it brings back painful memories as last time I was there. I overstretched trying to photograph the castle from an unusual angle and managed to fall through a barbed wire fence and ended up with stitches in my forearm!

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Super set Richard. Glorioius colours on the Bamburgh shots. I really like the beach hut shot too

As the above... great set - with the 1st sunrise shot the standout.

Must have been a rewarding workshop

More Groynes is my pick. I like the minimalism and the nice bit of light on the posts gives it an edge over the typical 'blurred sea with posts' shot. Craster Harbour is interesting too.
