148/365 – Painting with photography

Abstract, Nature, Photography

We spent a wonderful day on Lindisfarne (Holy Island) today.  We drove across the causeway at 9.30 am before the tide rose to cut us off from the mainland.   During our 4 hour stay, and before the waters receded again, we circumnavigated the island on foot and enjoyed the bright, breezy weather.  There was hardly a soul on the large sweeping beaches and the marram covered sand dunes.   It was a perfect opportunity to try a photographic technique I’d read about in a magazine.  I simply slowed the shutter speed to 1/25 sec and panned my camera from left to right whilst taking the photo.    I quite like the result, not dissimilar to a painted seascape.

Later, we headed to Alnwick gardens where we paid a visit to the poison garden.  Crikey, I never knew quite how many garden plants were poisonous, I may never garden without gloves ever again!
