Dunstanburgh Castle by John Carson

Dunstanburgh Castle

taken from Embleton Bay beach, Dunstanburgh Castle makes a fantastic backdrop to this sunrise shot. This 14th Century castle has always been a favourite of mine , I always try to imagine what life was like back when this was built , however History tells us the original owner Earl Thomas of Lancaster never got to live in it as he was executed after being captured at the battle of boroughbridge. The castle changed hands a few times before falling into decay in the 16th century. Still a very popular tourist attraction.
