Souter lighthouse, South Shields

Souter Lighthouse

It has been another dreadfully wet day in South Shields so I’ve delved into the archives again to bring you this picture of the sun rising behind Souter Lighthouse which is sited on the cliff tops between South Shields and Whitburn. I remember it being rather chilly as the sun came up but I was feeling warm within a few minutes, a stark contrast to how it has been during the past few days!

  5. That’s a fantastic photo Curly, I love the light and the silhouette of the lighthouse. The weather’s rubbish here too (I’m sure that will really surprise you!).
