Blustery Beadnell

Posted by Margaret Shaw on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, In : sketching 
Beadnell has proved to be very blustery over the last few days.  We managed a fabulous fine day on Beadnell  Beach with wonderful light effects.






We dodged lashing rain and hailstone and got a picture of Bamburgh Castle across a stormy sea from Seahouses4



And in the evenings I've done a little sketching with pens and watersoluble pastels.

Last of Autumn

Posted by Margaret Shaw on Wednesday, November 8, 2017, In : My Cumbria 
I think we're seeing the last of the Autumn colours now.  Here's a few local pictures from my circular walk along the Viaduct and through Hartley before returning home.
