Fun In The Fog 4 / 5

Tynemouth Castle & Priory

North East England

March 19, 2015

 

"Tynemouth Castle and Priory on the coast of North East England

was once one of the largest fortified areas in England.

Overlooking the North Sea and the River Tyne,

it dominates the headland. With its 2000 year history

and beautiful views it is the perfect location for a day out.

There is an interactive display that tells the storyof the site

from its original beginnings as an Anglo-Saxon settlement,

an Anglican monastery, a royal castle, artillery fort and a coastal defence.

The newly refurbished battery gun was designed to defend the Tyne

in the First and Second World Wars and can be explored."

This is my favorite of the foggy shots so far.

I like the mysterious atmosphere here Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Janet! I loved how thick the fog was!
What a super shot Elizabeth. The fog gives it a slightly sinister atmosphere, at the same time there seems to be just a hint of sunshine creeping in from the right.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Brian! I appreciate your critique!

A prime place to fortify, Elizabeth

I love the fog. I might have to get up early this summer and try to some
'fog shots' near the rivers.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was so interesting, Hollie - like it was a separate being!
