Bamburgh Castle Beachcombin

Everyone goes here and takes the same old pictures of the castle. From viewing others paintings and photographs and speaking to family I knew there was a great coastline begging to be included if only people would give it the attention it deserves. So I thought hard about the picture I wanted to take even before going up. The idea (no matter how successful) is that people will see the foreground dominating but on closer inspection their eye will be led to the horizon and therefore the castle. Switching priorities on the classic pictures of the scene where the castle dominates (of course I also took some of those, what do you take me for, I am a tourist after all! heh)
