Behold the sea

with one comment

Littlehaven Beach, South Shields

Behold the sea, the mighty restless sea!
Behold the strand of battered rock and sand!
The endless fight between the sea and man!
Behold the sea!
Through wind and storm the foaming breakers roar
What of the man who waits upon the shore?
What of the man you hold forevermore?
Behold the sea!
Rolling along in the starlight
Restless, plentiful and strong
Rolling along in the moonlight
Surf and spray shining in the sun
Behold the sea, the mighty restless sea!
Behold the strand of battered rock and sand!
The endless fight between the sea and man!
Behold the sea!

This is a picture from the archives taken around this time last year, when a group of lads were playing “chicken” with the sea on Harbour Drive at Littlehaven Beach, South Shields. I doubt that their mothers would have any qualms in severely berating them when they got home soaked to the skin!

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82mm lens, 1/90 second, f27, iso 800
