Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland, UK taken in January 2019
I took this picture as a memory of where and when we scattered my best friend Anya’s ashes. She had always wanted to return to the north of England to live, and Bamburgh Castle on the Northumberland coast was one of her favourite spots. So it was with great joy that we found this peaceful spot on the beach at low tide and with a glorious sunset to scatter her ashes in the sea. I hope you like your forever home my darling.
Backdrop to the Minnack Theatre, an open air theatre set in the rocks on the south Cornish coast near Land’s End

Seats decorated by the Minnack Theatre’s founder and creator Rowena Cade, using a screwdriver in her own special mix of concrete. Each one represents a play that has been put on at the theatre.

Highlights from my post-Christmas trip to the southern tip of Cornwall. Thank you to Anya & her family for inviting me to join you for a few days!
I’d also like to say a special thank you to my brother Steven, who bought me a year’s subscription to Adobe Photography suite for Christmas. I’ve enjoyed editing these photos using Adobe Lightroom rather than the freebie editing software I’ve been using to date. A whole new world has opened up to me!
Taken with my old iPhone and edited with Instagram, this is a typical Cornish coastline on a misty Bank Holiday Sunday. We chose to visit this particular spot, Gunwalloe Cove, because it was used in the recent BBC adaptation of the Poldark books.
