  • Stormclouds over Lindisfarne



    We had a nice sunny morning walk on Lindisfarne, then half way along the planned route, at about 1, this lot came along, so we retreated back to the car. Then the sun came out again

    It's been that kind of summer up here.

    John -

    That's a lovely moody shot - quite a contrast to our day at Lindisfarne in September. We were particularly fortunate as we had planned our visit for late one afternoon but realised we were pushing it a little with the tide - in fact it was a blessing we turned back as we would have been sitting it out on Holy Island until about 9.30 pm waiting for the tide to turn, by which time I think we'd have been in trouble finding overnight accommodation! As it happens the next morning was wonderful but by the time we'd left the island and the crowds were arriving the weather had turned but as your picture proves you don't need sun and blue skies for a memorable picture.

    Regards, Ann1e

      I was also there in September. Lovely blue skies but boring landscapes. Some places need bad weather to be photogenic. Mono & moody look is good and much better than anything I produced.

        There were storm clouds over Lindisfarne when we went there a few years ago!

        What few shops there are shut when the tide is in - presumably the owners think the nobody stays over high tide. My wife wanted to use the public toilet, which charges 20p. We didn't have a 20p and Lindisfarne was closed. My wife had to climb over the stile and was not best pleased. I only have to mention 'Lindisfarne' now and she's 'off'!

            Thanks for the comments.

            Yes, in common with many places where they have an endless supply of visitors (and therefore income), some locals can be very unhelpful and rude. My wife made the mistake of asking for change for the carpark at an Ice Cream van and was treated to a torrent of "you lot are all the same blah de blah". They're not all like this, mind.

              Great picture that reflects the many moods of the island.
