Alone on the Beach


A beautiful stretch of beach up on the Northumberland coast. There must be about 5 miles of unbroken golden sand and (at this time of year) almost no one there!

  1. This one is if possible even better! Still the pola filter?
    This could easily hang on my wall for years and years….. Love it!
    Have a great day 🙂

      Thanks Marie, I’m really glad you like it! I did use the polarising filter on this. To be honest I felt like I was taking a risk. I know with colour if you use a polarising filter with a wide angle lens you tend to end up with weird black steaks across the sky. I would have preferred to use a dark red filter but didn’t have one with me at the time
