Location County Country
Bamburgh Castle Northumberland England

DescriptionAn imposing Norman castle located on the Northumberland coast at Bamburgh.
What to ShootUse a fairly wide-angle lens and shoot rocks and pools in the foreground and the castle in the distance.
What to TakeTake wellington boots and a flask.
ParkingThere is plenty of parking in laybys along The Wynding - the second layby is arguably the best.
Best TimesSunrise and sunset are generally the best times to photograph here. A good, interesting sky will help make good pictures. Avoid high-tide as most of the interesting rocks and pools on the beach are inaccessible at high tide.
