Early one morning
Just before the sun was rising
This view of North Shields fish quay was taken at around 05:50, about an hour before sunrise. The tall white building is known as the High Light and was used as a navigational aid for ships entering the River Tyne in the years before we had modern lighthouses.
The shot was taken from Harbour View in South Shields, a modern housing complex which was built on reclaimed land which used to store petro-chemicals.
