Ship ahoy!

Graham Sands, South Shields

Graham Sands

There is a very small rocky wild bay behind Trow Rocks in South Shields called Graham Sands and recently much of it has been filled in with huge rocks to protect the coastline from erosion. Trow Quarry facing this small rocky beach used to be used as a landfill site for the town’s rubbish many years ago.

On the horizon you will be able to see a ship making for the River Tyne, this shot was taken at high water yesterday afternoon.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/6th second (hand held) f22, iso 800
