Causeway, Holy Island

Holy Island , in Northumberland,  is a tidal island which is cut off from the mainland twice a day at high tide. This picture was taken as the waters were receding from the causeway. The white structure that can be seen is a refuge for motorists who become  trapped by the tide. Despite the warning signs there are several occasions per year when motorists have to be rescued such as this: example


  1. Beautiful place, Holy Island. Been there a number of times. Stayed overnight for a couple of nights, too. There is a wonderful peace there when the tide cuts it off from the mainland and most of the tourists have left!

  2. Martin; a magical place indeed, kind regards, Charles

  3. Wonderful composition - looks like the swan is heeding the sign's warning!
