On a sketching trip we stopped for a wee break, (and a trip to the loo my darlin') in Craster Village, this was an oportunity to capture some ROCKIN@ photos, Yeah man!

Wow! Definitely rocks, Mike! Beautiful tones and textures and the Furze bushes help show the size of this cliff. Well seen! Theolfa

Jean Gregory Evans on May 30, 2009

Oh, I totally agree! Truly ROCKS! The colors are a real treat for my eyes, they are really enjoying this photo.

This is going into my faves for sure! Awesome, and well, Best Of too!

Try zooming in on the map to see the old Quarry, then zoom out to see where Craster is at!

I think you might enjoy the exercise!

I am greatly honoured by praise from such a wonder photographer like what you are, Massively honoured as you are a fellow artist of great renown too! Thank you so much!. In accepting the praises, I'd like to thank Nature and her forces for this Dolomite squeeze, and the workers who exposed it whilst quarrying the roadstone in the early 1900's to ship out around the globe, thankfully, someone invented Asphalt, so we could admire this!

If ever you make it over here, put this on your 'to see' list...Dammit! the whole Northumberland scenery needs to there too!


Theolfa on May 30, 2009

Well, Mike I'm exhausted after all that zooming, but I guess Craster is NE coast area. Cheers! from kipper loving Theolfa.

I love this one Mike.

Cheers Jen

Hallo, Jen!

I love this one too, the photograph does not show the setting though, just as well, for it is an old quarry, now a carpak area(not far from the pretty fishing village of CRASTER now for tourists but had a very important fishing fleet(sail powered) and a world famous smokery, Craster Kippers were the best!

The link will lead you to other parts of the coast, all worth a visit, and when you're done, I'll put the kettle on!

Best regards

Thanks Sunshine - I'll take a look and I'd love a cuppa when I'm done.

Cheers Jen

We went to that car park about a month ago and I totally missed the quarry bit! We did find the food van that does the best square sausage sarnies I've ever had, though.

The Whin Sill nicely captured at Craster.

Yer marra Keith (I got a new old camera off Freecycle - a Zenit E.)

trikermike on June 8, 2009

Mmmm, Zenit, great camera for it's time, but you neede a lot of time! I only made it to the dizzy realms of Praktika, third-hand, dodgy lens, but it was my intro to SLR, soon replaced with a spanking new Canon AE1, purchased fro Turners, sold to me by the wonderful M

trikermike on June 8, 2009

MMmmm, remiscing about M led me to forget about thanking you for your comment, marra, she still does that!

keepahaad, marra!
