One of the greatest small (under an hour) walks along the Northumberland coast, is from the beautiful fishing village of Craster north to Dunstanburgh Castle. It took me a good couple of hours because I walked along the rocky shore photographing the rock pools and trying to get more interesting angles for photographs of the castle. About half way along the shore I came across this large piece of drift wood. There are no trees within sight of there so it must have been washed up by the sea. Once I had taken the photo, I looked at the LCD monitor on the back on the camera and saw a big white thing. When looking closely at the view I saw a massive plastic water bottle. My first thought was “Photoshop it out” but then I thought, no I want to re-take this picture. I put down the camera and climbed over the rocks to get rid of the litter by hand. I’m glad I did, because if I hadn’t, I probably wouldn’t have gone to the trouble of digitally removing it and therefore never would have published this photograph.
