Graham Sands, South Shields

Graham Sands, South Shields

This is a variation on a theme taken from a batch of shots produced at Graham Sands just behind Trow Rocks, South Shields. This was subjected to a fair degree of manipulation in Photoshop to try and reproduce the effect of infra red film. The original colour file was converted to black and white before loading an infra red action (which is available from Action Central), after that I used an Alien Skin plug in filter called Exposure to add the selenium – split brown toning, and finally introduced more noise from Photoshop’s built in filters.

That is the reason why the sea and the sky are mainly black!

  1. That’s quite lovely. Certainly add drama to the very harsh landscape. Nice!

  2. Quite a lot of work but to excellent effect. It reminds me of Arizona or Utah.

  3. I like this. The landscape almost looks lunar (except for the clouds of course). But I also agree with Strangetastes of it reminding them of Arizona or Utah. It reminds me of John Ford’s famous location in Monument Valley. In fact I can ‘see’ John Wayne et al just out of shot as they wait to gallop forth to their destiny.

    PS. Possibly I need to get out more! 😉
