View from Marsden Craggs, South Shields

The view 17 miles distant

Here is another view from Marsden Craggs, South Shields, this one looks up the coast. Moving from the bottom of the frame upwards we first see two horizontal structures, these are the two piers of South Shields and Tynemouth, just above them is Tynemouth Haven with it’s ruined castle and abbey. The white lighthouse in the middle distance is at St. Mary’s, or Bait Island, and on the extreme left we can see the gigantic wind farm of electricity generating windmills at Blyth/ Cambois.

I’ve labelled the huge chimney of the aluminium plant at Lynemouth in the distance and a quick measure on Google Earth tells me that the straight line distance from where I stood was 17 miles!

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 450mm lens, /500 second, f9.5, iso 200

  2. Wow. That’s a long ways off. Clear day sure helps, eh? I particularly like the rooftops in the foreground. No, I don’t know why, but I do.
