Grass silhouette

I  enjoy very much and admire greatly the woodcuts of Eric Gill.  It was with his inspiration in mind that I attempted the above style of processing and presentation.

Bamburgh Castle at sunset

 

Situated on the north east coast of England, near to the border with Scotland and just a few miles south of Lindisfarne, Bamburgh  was a military stronghold for many centuries, even pre-dating the Roman Conquest.  Following the Norman Conquest it occupied a strategic position during the numerous wars against the Scots..  I t was the seat of the powerful Dukes of Northumbria, the Percy family  –  best known to many through Henry Percy (Hotspur in Shakespeare’s Henry IV Part One)  In 1464, during the Wars of the Roses, Bamburgh became the first castle in England to be destroyed by gunfire.  It never regained its status as a powerful fortress.
