Walk in the fog #10

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 17 April 2011 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

The entrance to Tyne Dock shrouded by heavy fog.

Tyne Dock in South Shields is part of The Port of Tyne, and it is the major logistics facility in the north of England acting as a hub accepting imports and sending exports to the rest of the world. It is from here that Nissan services its plant at Washington and sends its new cars to continental Europe. In the late 1700s and early 1800s this area was alive with wooden hulled ships, stevedores and lighters.

Well, it's Sunday now and I hope to be able to test my graphics card in someone else's desktop so that I might be able to rule out a motherboard fault, I hope it is just the video card giving up, at least it will be quick, easy, and relatively cheap to replace. I have one more picture loaded for tomorrow and don't fancy having to edit some on my laptop after that, just not sure if they'll look good at all (its screen isn't calibrated.) In fact this picture looks all washed out on this screen, hope it looks a little better on yours.

PENTAX K100D 1/10 second F/22.0 ISO 800 52 mm (35mm equiv.)

I've also had recurrent PC probs over the last 3 weeks. Think I've fixed it, and then 2 days later BSOD. It turned out to be 2 drives failing at once :-(. Now here's the sad thing, I've had a low-level Ague(Kinda coldy, fluey thing) whilst this has been going on. When I finally finally fixed the fault yesterday, the cold went-instantly. To me that's the power of your brain, screwing with your body. Depressed/pissed off head, screwed body. Bloody PC's really can make you ill! I hope you aren't suffering with something similar!

Ralph Jones from Detroit, United States

I have always loved a foggy atmosphere, this one has a dark and ominous feel to it perhaps because of the fence and barbed wire, makes you wonder what's on the other side?
