I went down to Marsden Bay this weekend (at the wrong time of day, mid afternoon) with the idea of shooting some longer exposures. Even with stacked ND filters I didn't manage anything longer than 3 seconds at f22. However, the small bits and pieces of "my time" have to be taken as and when Mrs. Curly has someone else to look after her.
This is what is left of Marsden Rock after its huge arch collapsed in 1996, South Shields' folk liked it so much more then. You could walk under the arch at low tide, and many years ago you could climb steps and join the guillemots on the top!
Shot this as the bands of clouds started to move in, the breeze was getting up, and even on the ebb tide the waves were starting to get lively. I've really no idea how good or bad the weather is here this morning (I'm typing this yesterday), but lets just hope that the threatened storm which is passing over the UK doesn't take my roof with it :-)
Whilst the southern parts of the UK got a bit of a battering overnight this "St. Jude's" storm seems to have tracked well to the south of us here. Hardly a breeze to be felt in South Shields and little more than the odd light rain shower - phew.........lucky us!
