"Charley's Gold"

Inspired by looking back at these post sunrise shots of Charley's Garden, at Old Hartley, Northumberland.


View On Black


The sandstone stack is known as Charley's Garden. Now much eroded by, and collapsed into, the sea, it is so called after Charlie who used to have a garden on the top(when it was much bigger).


It's an amazing thought that this was once part of the mainland and that a chap would plant his vegetables here! Such a great part of the history of the coastline here at Old Hartley.


This was a really enjoyable morning catching the sunrise from up on top of the cliffs and then waiting for the tide to go out and catch some images whilst sat on the beach. In fact I got a little bit to comfortable sat on the beach and was soon being covered by the incoming waves! Well when you've got wellies and waterproof pants on you don't care, well not too much!


The sidelight caught these rocks beautifully and the 35mm f1.8 lens did the rest of the magic picking up all the lines and shapes!


Such a wonderful place to visit if you're ever in this neck of the woods to! Enjoy your Sunday!
