Derbyshire aside, Northumberland is one of our favourite counties. It’s history, landscape and unspoiled coastline add up to an intoxicating mix for the photographer. Like many visitors, we tend to base ourselves near the coast due to the allure of capturing dramatic seascapes and deserted beaches. History abounds in Northumberland, in fact it is hard to escape it. The stunning castles at Anwick and Bamburgh are must sees, as are the hauntingly beautiful ruins of Dunstanburgh. For wildlife photographers there are the Farne Islands and the tidal region of Budle bay, home to many species of seabird.
Having visited the area a few times now, we still have only scratched the surface of what there is to see and photograph. Below are some of our favourite images from recent trips.
