Lindisfarne

Holy Is is a photographers haven - the old ruined castle is on a jutting out rock almost surrounded by sea. Old upturned boats on the beach form sheds for fishermen - I've seen amazing photos from here at night with long exposure and stars.

Lindisfarne, Holy Island is a photographer's paradise. Amongst the many locations around the island, the harbour is particularly unique.

This is truly an awe-inspiring photography location. The observatory sits in the middle of Northumberland’s Kielder Forest, overlooking the spectacular Kielder reservoir - Northern Europe’s largest man-made lake.

Absolutely breathtaking place in which you could spend hours (probably days) photographing the beach, pebbles, sandstone stacks, lighthouse, rocks, sea, etc. Well worth the visit.

Lovely location, with both the castle and a ruined priory close to one another. Lovely quaint harbour, with upturned boats used as boat sheds.

This iconic tree was used as a location in the film Robin Hood Prince of thieves, and is a notable point in the midst of Hadrians Wall. There are a couple of car-parks close by, but both will require a walk with some upward climbs.

Although most shots are taken from the north beach, the southern beach is also worth a go as it offers a different perspective and it's also more suited for sunset.

This is very much a beginners guide as I have only been here the once based on the suggestions of the MapMyPhoto community. Their advice proved invaluable.

Long exposure

If you have a 10-Stop filter then Cambois is a good location on a rainy (or just a dull grey) day. There is an often photographed groyne near the north end of the beach. Towards the south end are the two wind turbines.
