I had heard a lot of great things said about the photographic opportunities and picturesque scenes that awaited me on my first trip over to Holy Island (otherwise known as Lindsfarne). I was staying up in Northumberland in the North East of England for the second time last summer. However, on the first trip I never went across to this small island and nobody had mentioned these interesting boats to me before. Obviously this is recycling at its best and these old boats have now been converted into sheds for the fisherman.
This is a Suzuki Hayabusa, which is one of the world’s fastest production motorcycles, with a crazy top speed of 194 miles per hour. I took the above photograph outside a church on Holy Island / Lindsfarne off the coast of Northumberland. I have no idea who the owner was, but the bike was in fantastic condition.
Taken in the small town of Warkworth in Northumberland, this church didn’t look very exciting from the outside, but my friend Keith had told me that there was some very spectacular stained glass inside. As you can see from the sky, it was just the day for this type of photograph. It was in this church that I photographed the window published just a few days ago, that can be seen below.
You may have seen some of my puffin photos that were taken off the Northumberland coast at the Farne Islands. Well to get out there you need to take a small boat from the harbour at Seahouses. This is one of the St. Cuthbert boats coming into harbour, obviously it was coming back from the Islands and it was quite early in the morning, so the boat wasn’t very full.
