Inspired by Lux

These pictures were inspired by the Lux exhibition in the grounds of Cragside. It’s a celebration of light and innovation. I loved the sounds of the laurel tree growing (harmonica botanica) spilling around the formal gardens. The glass light vessel was also striking. Here’s some images produced using the filter presets in Snapseed: the light vessel, the wonderful owl carving that’s a permanent feature in the grounds and lastly some of the wonderful textures in the lush vegetation.

Misty Coquetdale: Lady’s Well, Cragside and Windy Gyle

Coquetdale is rich in history, ancient and modern, and has lots of natural splendour: all of which we have experienced this last three days with Jeannie.  It has been rather misty, damp and decidedly cool at times but we have had excellent walks nevertheless: at Lady’s Well (with Jackie, Angus and Izzie … plus dogs), Cragside and Windy Gyle.

Here’s a gallery of pictures: see what we met in the woods …
