Roger at Housesteads

Roger at Housesteads

Roger Clegg and Andrew Whitaker are Northern Horizons Photography , Roger has taken many of the photos used to promote
Hadrian’s Wall while Andrew specialises in the coast and Tyneside.

Roger met  Hector and I this morning at Housesteads to show us how he takes spectacular sunrises. It was very cold and whilst I had a decent coat and some mitts on,  jeans were a mistake, but we did as we were told and then on the way home we stopped on the bridge at Chollerford to take some of the river, after which we went home to see what we could do with the images………………I soon realised that the taking of the pictures was just the beginning, as Roger showed us how to make the best of them, and I have to say I was both surprised and pleased with the results, it wasn’t the perfect dawn but we got a good result if you forgive the corny aboration from the sun. and the Tyne wasn’t bad either.

The morning was such a success that either Roger or Andrew would be happy to repeat the exercise with anyone who would be interested, you will find details on our “courses and activities” page:


Charles' first attempt.
