Castles: Standing in dramatic locations up and down the coast, North Northumberland has plenty to offer the photographer in terms of historic buildings. I am only following in the footsteps of the “picturesque” painters such as JMW Turner and co. in feeling the irresistible draw of the castle as a subject for a composition. These are much loved views and I relish the challenge of finding a new photograph from a familiar subject. For me this is found through observation and the process of Finding the Photograph that is lurking somewhere in that classic view.
