Bridging the Wear

with 3 comments

Wearmouth Bridges, Sunderland

Wearmouth Bridges, Sunderland

The River Wear lies just to the south of South Shields and enters the North Sea at Sunderland. The city is bifurcated by the river with the older Monkwearmouth, Seaburn, and Fulwell to the north and the younger city centre, Grangetown, Ryhope, and Hendon to the south.

Two bridges cross the Wear near it’s mouth, carrying traffic into and away from the busy city centre, on the left the road bridge and on the right the rail bridge.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, /750 second, f9.5, iso 200, polarising filter.

  2. Great angle and perfect converted to black and white. But I wonder why you needed ISO 200 pointing the camera direct into the sun. Just curious…
