The annual trip to the Farne Islands occured this week. This year I travelled with two local photographic friends Rich and Steve and the day started pretty grim indeed. We were sat at breakfast together watching the rain batter the roads and pavements outside. We must have looked pretty miserable to the other guests in the hotel. However, as this first post shows, that day turned out quite differenty in the weather department and we were treated to much higher shutter speeds than we had imagined at breakfast.
