Lighthouse and pier repairs

A few running repairs to the lighthouse and the south pier as South Shields gets ready for it’s invasion of summer visitors. And if anyone fancied a quick run along to the end to find out what is happening, then let me remind you that the distance from the pier head to the lighthouse is exactly one mile!

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 450mm lens, /1000 second, f8.0, iso 200

  1. I love this shot! Dark seas, dark skies, and the lighthouse as a spot of color.

  2. I agree with Hilda. The dark sky and sea really grabs my attention!

  3. South Shields pier is 5,170ft in length (or for those who have been metricated, 1553m).

    a mile is 5280ft

    just to be exact
