This photograph shows one of my favourite vistas in the world, in Northumberland on the road to Bamburgh. Bamburgh Castle isn’t the castle in this view, though, rather it is in Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island just up the coast a bit. This was taken as the sun was setting one day in January this year. There are some birds around this particular spot, feeding on the worms and other beasties, and it encapsulates what this week’s WordPress photo challenge theme ‘Earth’ means to me: the beauty of the world and that we share it with other species just living their lives despite ourselves and our actions.
