Tyne Dock, South Shields

A glorious sunset over the River Tyne caught at 7:30 yesterday evening from Readhead’s Landing, South Shields.

Tugs are manoeuvring a bulk carrier in to it’s berth at the Port of  Tyne’s Nissan terminal, ready for loading more cars for export to continental Europe.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 55 mm lens, 1/250 second, f8.0, iso 200, Velbon tripod

  1. I like this a lot. Not just the sunset, but all the rest of it. I had to take my time and look carefully to take it all in.

  2. Glorious is the word and proves an industrial sunset is often the most beautiful.

  4. Soft and strong – the soft evening sunset – the strength of the industrial cranes. Hustle and bustle of a bygone era on the breeze to a much quieter Tyne now.
    Great shot!
