I couldn't resist shooting at the moon one evening last week as it rose in the west above the River Tyne. This was the view from the Mill Dam in South Shields, and the next afternoon the very spot where I was shooting from was inundated as the Tyne burst its banks on a combination of an extremely high tide and a storm surge in the North Sea. I have some pictures of the flood waters but I'll probably save them for a later date.
This view shows much of the facilities and the work of The Port of Tyne at North Shields and Tyne Dock in South Shields, and the crescent moon was so prominent in the clear sky that I couldn't walk away without a quick hand held shot of the scene.
Many apologies for my absence around AM3 these last few weeks, but my wife, Sharon, is going through a rough and painful time, her cancers are slowly growing and she requires a fair bit of help with her pain management. I'm afraid my absences will continue for a while.
