    I never realised that the sun sets over the sea up there! (I guess the coast curves round a bit in places?) I though Hunstanton in Norfolk was the only place on the east coast where you could watch the sun set :) (ps lovely sunset btw)

  • Well you learn something new every day Steve! ;-) It surprised me too but because of the curve in the coastline it is possibly as shown here. You can also capture it further down the NE coast but only at certain times of the year. Thanks for the comment

    This is magnificent! I have been to Bamburgh beach several times and think it is the cleanest in England, but only in the morning or the afternoon. We have always aimed to be home by nightfall. Now I know what I have been missing!

  • Thanks very much for the kind words and support, it’s a wonderful place at anytime of day or night!

    Beautiful golden tones David with just a sliver of blue struggling for display in the water as the setting sun colours the scene in a temporary wash of gold. The hits of reflection in the wet sand are superb.

  • Thanks for the detailed comment Stuart, it’s the hints of reflection which attract my eyes too.
