Any port in a storm

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 17 October 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A small ship scurries towards the piers here in South Shields as a summer storm threatens to engulf the coast.
Taken from Sandhaven Beach and looking towards the piers which define the harbour at the mouth of the River Tyne.
