This shot was taken in a dash to get to the beach before the sunset disappeared. I left my wife in the car and dashed down to the beach from the carpark with my camera and tripod. To my amazement there were about a dozen others with cameras and tripods all set-up to capture this moment! I had to jostle between them to get my tripod set-up also, and hoped I got the shot. This was a film camera so I could not see the result, as you can now with digital instantly! Bit too easy now!! However I still think if I ever get to Bamburgh again I could take a much better shot?
This picture also appears in the following picture tours:

It was well worth the effort!! Beautiful shot James!!
Amazing shot indeed James!
It's gorgeous as is, James!
great shot and worth the effort. Past photography was always a bit of a hit and miss affair. new digital photography allows you to see the result right away and retake before the subject dissapears, thus allowing anyone interested to get involved, not a bad thing I say.
This is a beautiful picture James you do wonderful work!!
Its just amazing!
Wow, love this pic!
Stunning, James. My husband and I are definitely going up to see Bamburgh castle after seeing photos like this and knowing how well-restored and preserved Bamburgh is. Lucky Armstrong family who get to live in a fairytale dream like Bamburgh.
