Holy Island

Whilst on holiday we made our second visit to the wonderful Holy Island otherwise known as Lindisfarne.

Lindisfarne Castle
September 2018

It’s a busy place, even out of season as we were, but a very special one.  Visits are determined by the tide and many people head straight for the castle and priory missing the incredible beach.

Nobody much on the beach
Love Lindisfarne

I knew from a brief visit last year that the old boathouses were very photogenic

The pink boat house Lindisfarne
Pretty in pink

But this trip I found some lovely close up shots which provide great inspiration for some textile or other work

 

And some others for work in paint or mixed media.  I usually work in earth colours so these will make a nice change.

  1. I’m sitting here giggling to myself because you and I could swap photos and we’d not be able to tell the difference – ripped tarpaulins are us 🙂 I’d just like to say of course that I think you have exceedingly good taste – but then I would wouldn’t I ?
