Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

This is Bamburgh Castle.

It was a rainy, mist swept day when we were there but, somehow, that added to the strength and formidability of the castle. (It is always harder to make a cloudy day have the impact of a bright blue sky, with gorgeous light, but the moods can often be stronger.)

It is situated on a sheer, rocky outcrop, a perfect location for its security.

I have just been reading a set of historical novels by Bernard Cornwell beginning with 'The Last Kingdom' which are all about Saxon Northumberland and Bambugh Castle at the time of the Viking invasions. This link will explain about the novels and Uhtred, the main character.
I can seriously recommend them as a good read.

After enjoying these books, it almost felt like coming home when I at last visited Bamburgh (Bebbanburg in the novels).

Many thanks for stopping by.
I hope you enjoyed the photgraph and the link, Bev :-)
