Camel Island, South Shields

Camel Island

This small island is in Marsden Bay, South Shields and the path to it is always submerged at high tide. Camel Island is reached via a small path leading down the side of a gently sloping cliff face and it is reputed that the Romans had a quay here and used this route to supply their fort at Arbeia.

This one has had a fair bit of work in Photoshop, the original picture was in colour and taken on a grey lifeless afternoon, you can see it here. So after converting to black and white, removing the sky and replacing it with new clouds and a moon, I then needed to to some additional dodging and burning to create this effect.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/60 seconf, f5.6, iso 200

  1. Very cool! Looks like a scene from a science fiction movie. Nice reflection of the moon in the puddle!

  2. That is so beautiful! The original isn’t bad either. I hope that you are planning to have an exhibit of photography sometime.
