Slow winter waves

Trow Rocks, South Shields

Trow Rocks

Slow exposure, slow but heavy waves, bitterly cold, hail driving against the skin, feeling very raw.

It makes you wonder how our ancestor’s had the heart to make a living from the sea, and it helps you realise how so many wooden hulls lay battered across these rocks in South Shields as they fought their way towards the Tyne. When the wind comes from the North East and the tide is high it can be treacherous here, luckily today the wind was in the North West otherwise I would not have planted my tripod here.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 35mm lens, 1/4 second, f22, iso 200, 2 X ND filter, Velbon tripod.

  1. You’ve made me feel the cold and the wind and the hail and the history, Curly, all with your splendid black and white photo. For that I say a hearty, “Thank you!”
