Dunstanburgh Castle - Coast
This scene might look peaceful but the reality was anything but! A strong wind, heavy rain and unbelievably slippery boulders made it a real challenge to navigate my way to the water's edge as I followed the tide out and the only way to do it was to adopt a gorilla-style crawl - not very dignified and I was just thankful that there were no witnesses! I still managed to fall over several times and only managed to avoid smashing my camera (which I was carrying mounted on the tripod - not a great idea in hindsight!) by making sure that I hit the rocks before it did. I came home from that trip with an impressive crop of bruises but I can't wait to go back for another visit.
