Dunstanburgh Castle

It’s taken me a while to get around to sorting out these photos but I have finally got around to it. They were taken last October on a trip to Northumberland, on this particular day we visited Dunstanburgh Castle.

Have a look at the English Heritage website (http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/daysout/properties/dunstanburgh-castle/) for more information about the castle.

The 1.5 mile walk along the coastline from the fishing village of Craster (where they smoke freshly caught kippers) to the castle is superb, so much so that the walk is rated among the best in the UK (http://www.theguardian.com/travel/2010/aug/17/top-10-uk-walks-northumberland).

We visited on a nice sunny day but I imagine that the walk would be even more dramatic in stormy weather. The photos above were all taken with my Nikon D80 and few fellow walkers cloned out. The shot below was taken using my Nikon FE with Kodak Tri-X and developed in Rodinal.
