Northumberland: The Snook

Hiking on The Snook, a long, low, dune- and grass-covered spit of land on the west side of Holy Island (Lindisfarne), Northumberland, UK. The castle-like tower hidden away among the dunes was originally a windmill, built in the 19th century to drain a mining shaft, when attempts were made to find workable coat deposits here. Holy Island and The Snook are part of one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline anywhere in Britain. © Rudolf Abraham.

Beautiful composition, Rudolf 🙂

The two interesting old buildings, the winding path and the human element makes this image so special 🙂
