Here are the rest of the photos I took at Thundering Pool in Northumberland a couple of weeks ago. The light is dim in the shaded hollow, and all the rocks are twisted and wrinkled into faces and shapes from the otherworld. Shadows and light drift and shift, and sound is muffled and distorted. In other words nothing is quite as it first appears in the shaded hollow of Thundering Falls.
There is a timeless feel reaching back to the age of dinosaurs, when ferns were as high as a mans head, and gulls had the wingspans of eagles.
The shadows and light play tricks on the eyes.
The water tumbles and sparkles into the still depths of the pool.
Here all wishes might be answered, if only you know how to ask.
