Day out at South Shields









It's been a funny old day today. We started the day with brilliant sunshine which later turned to violent hail stones and then back to bright sunshine again. Despite the weather I had a nice day out at South Shields and got some (what I think) decent shots. I was watching two tug boats guiding a very large shp through the mouth of the Tyne safely into harbour. The sea was a little choppy, but the snow brought visibility down to nought at one point. Here's some photos showing the progress of the ship through the mouth of the Tyne.

Some really great photos today Carole - fantastic light and drama.

I've now got that "when the boat comes in" song stuck in my head - you know, the one they use on the fish adverts! Grrrr going to be humming "Thou shalt have a fishie on a little dishie" for ages now LOL

LOL Anna, sorry. LOL thanks. I had a great day and am feeling a lot more confident again with my landscapes after a very good day out.

Is that red tower a lighthouse?

Carole said...

thanyou Sue for your comment. Yes it is a lighthouse. It's very unusual isn't it.
