Staithes Rising

I took the above image of the staithes rising above the incoming tide at the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Northumberland UK yesterday. The timber staithes are the remains of an old jetty in front of Lindisfarne Castle (view more example here).

The long-exposure shot gives an other-worldly feel to the image.
