South Shields

South Shields

It was a lovely day for taking a walk yesterday in relatively warm spring sunshine, so I ventured uphill to Marsden Craggs following the wall that marks the boundary of South Shields Golf Club until I came to the old Marsden Hall. Stopping along the way this was the view of South Shields and the North East coast all the way to Blyth. We can clearly see the River Tyne pouring into the North Sea through the harbour and it’s two piers, in the centre there is the broad expanse of Sandhaven Beach and beyond the piers the white lighthouse on St. Mary’s Island.

The red tiled houses in the foreground are all in the Marsden and Horsley Hill areas of South Shields, on the way back I passed the white horse (which looks as though it has only recently been given a fresh coat of paint.)

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82 mm lens, 1/500 second, f9.5, iso 200
