A Change of Pace


Land and Sea

The Pilgrimage {1}

The Pilgrimage {2}

The Beach


I seem to have been concentrating on still life a lot lately....and this weeks lesson at Be Still 52 reminded me of the world outside and how great it is to mix things up a bit.

I am not a natural landscape photographer and am often disappointed with what I come home with but when you are spending time with people you love, in a place as breathtaking as this, somehow it all falls into place.

These were all taken on holiday in Northumberland.  The pilgrim route to Holy Island across the sands and the final shot is on Snook Beach.  I think we saw maybe 4 other people.  At peak holiday season in August.  Quite a change for this suburbanite.  And a reinforcement that a change of pace can be just the creative adjustment you need. :)

  5. I love these pictures, Becs! It is a refreshing change to be with special people in special places. For me, there is something about being by water that reaches deep within me to refresh my soul. It looks like you had that kind of time.

  9. Your photos are so beautiful, Becs! I can so relate - landscape photography is sooo hard for me, but I guess it's good to try new things once in a while ;-)

  11. Yes, a change of pace can be just what we need sometimes! Those beach pictures made me want to take off my shoes and go running around barefoot too. :)
