Autumn colour #3.

Chichester Metro station, South Shields

Chichester Metro Station

Trees turn to autumn reds outside of Chichester Metro Station in South Shields, contrasting strongly with the corporate yellows of Nexus who operate the Tyne Wear Metro (subway) system. After a long grey, wet, and damp summer, the occasional glimpse of sunshine adding some colour to our streets is very welcome, if only for a few short hours.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 60mm lens, 1/180 second, f6.7, iso 200

  1. Such a beautiful capture of autumn color. I hope you have a long, warm, cheerful fall season to help make up for last summer.

  3. Lovely photo. It’s such a shame though that the gardens are no longer there – as well as the old High Shields station (which Chichester replaced), and Westoe Lane and South Shields railway stations have long since disappeared too. ‘Chichester’ always makes me smile – people outside of the town don’t seem to fathom the inverted Sandancer pronunciation of ‘Chi’. If you’re from South Shields or nearby then you’ll know what I mean!
