Port Campbell National Park, Australia

Port Campbell National Park

This is my latest choice from pictures submitted by the members of Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board, South Shields busiest internet forum now with over 200,000 posts!

The picture was taken by Andrew Wiltshire who lives in Warrnambool, Victoria, Australia and it shows a coastal view from the Port Campbell National Park coastal area fairly close to the famous Twelve Apostles along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. I liked it largely because this area of Australian coastline is so much like Marsden in South Shields and even the name of the road resonates with Sanddancers around the world.

Andrew’s picture was taken with his Nikon D40 shooting at 1/250 second, f8, and iso 200

Dawn at Seaburn

This week’s well deserved pick from those submitted by the members of Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board is this wonderful early morning shot taken just down the road from South Shields. It was taken by South Shields Man Brian Riley, and I think it’s a wonderful local shot to show the world.

Camera info: NIkon D90, 18mm lens, 1/30 second, f16, iso 100

false Bay South Australiat

False bay/Black point, Eyres Peninsula, South Australia

I’ve chosen this picture from those contributed from the members of Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board this week, it was submitted by Cheryl Abrahamson and depicts False bay/Black point in South Australia near where she lives in Whyalla. I chose it because it is so synonymous with the coast line around South Shields, Marsden, and Whitburn.

According to Cheryl this location is one of around three breeding grounds around the world for the giant cuttlefish and lies about 40 minutes drive from her home town. To me, it does not look that far removed from Whitburn beach!

The picture was taken on Cheryl’s Nokia mobile phone.

Sunderland International Air Show 2009

Sunderland International Air Show 2009

Three is a crowd

If I wondered why South Shields seemed remarkably quiet and empty on Saturday afternoon then I guess this was the reason why.

The 21st. Sunderland International Air Show was taking place just a few miles down the road, the sun was out, it was dry and warm, and a few people had taken to the beach at Seaburn! In fact organisers reckon that there may have been 500,000 visitors or more in Seaburn and Roker on Saturday to watch the aviators in what is Europe’s largest free event of it’s kind – a lot of chips, burgers, and ice cream were consumed!

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 30 mm lens, 1/500 second, f9.5, iso 200

Man in a marigold glove “performing” on Sandhaven Beach, South Shields – he was a bit strange!
