Photographer's Note

“But everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, the torrents raged, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell—and great was its collapse”
Matthew 7:26-27

I don’t think this castle was actually built on the sand but that was a visual impression which I had looking at that view. This photo presents Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland. I visited it not for the first time towards the end of May 2020. The weather forecast was great, and I knew from prior experiences that the vast beach next to it is empty even on a sunny bank holiday weekend. Interesting fact which you need to know about Bamburgh Castle is, that similarly to Edinburgh, it is far from being pronounced as German Burg in Hamburg. Wikipedia says it should be pronounced as /ˈbæmbərə/ but I usually hear something close to Bambra (or Edynbra respectively).

I have previously showed on TrekEarth the classic postcard style point of view on this magnificent castle:
Here I tried to show it from a less popular angle.
