The ruins of the majestic Dunstanburgh Castle sit on the coast of England not far south of well known Bamburgh Castle, in the Northumbria Region.

This was one of the most challenging shoots in my entire career.

I initially booked 3 nights accommodation in nearby Seahouses, intending to shoot the castles at Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh. Every morning and night I attempted shooting these incredible medieval icons but the weather delivered nothing but overcast skies and intermittent rain. So we decided to stay an additional couple of nights in the hope that something might change for me. It was an $800 gamble (the price of the only accommodation we could find at late notice), but thankfully it paid off!

The final morning of our stay I awoke to the sound of rain but could still see some strong potential for a colourful sky. I drove then hiked in to my chosen location, Dunstanburgh Castle. As the sky started to light up, I was praying constantly for the rain to ease but it didn't!

I setup my gear and got to work anyway. As the sunrise peaked the wind and rain pelted me from the side and breaking waves rolled around my ankles. In between every shot I took I had to reach around with my lens cloth and re-clean the lens (while holding a very battered umbrella in my other hand).

In the end I took close to 20 shots but only 1 of them was free from rain drops.

I learnt a very valuable lesson that morning - Even when everything seems like it's against you, never give up, have faith and God will deliver...
