Souter Lighthouse, South Shields

National Trust lighthouse

This is another picture from my archives taken in March 2007 with the Konica Minolta Dimage Z3, probably before I had the SLR. I may have posted a similar version of this (over sharpened) picture in the past, I cannot remember.

Souter lighthouse is at the southern edge of South Shields in between Marsden and Whitburn village and it was the first lighthouse in the UK to use electricity for it’s 800,000 cadle power light, it started operating in 1871 and is now owned by The National Trust.

Camera details: Konica Minolta Dimage Z3, 420 mm lens, 1/400 second, f5, iso 100

  2. I do love this photo Curly. Perhaps it is the color or maybe the composition…or maybe I just like lighthouses.
