Marsden Rock, South Shields

Marsden Rock, South Shields

As promised in my post yesterday, here is the view from the patio of the world famous Marsden Grotto in South Shields.

Normally you can expect to see an expanse of the broad pebbled beach leading towards Marsden Rock but on this day the tide was so high that it was in danger of breaching the wall making the bar and restaurant awash with this deep foam creating sea water! (This has happened on a few occasions in the past). The water here is only four or five feet from the patio wall and the steps leading to the beach!

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/750 second, f5.6, iso 200

  1. The beauty and the wildness in your neck of the woods is simply stunning and of course, so beautifully photographed by you.
