Riders on a storm

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 1 January 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Happy New Year and a big welcome to 2014 everyone!
May your camera always be by your side :-)

I'm very short of new material from South Shields and looking after my wife has to be my main priority ofr this year, so today I have brought this from the archives, it's a picture of five ships sitting out some awful weather and waiting for a chance of a good calm sea before entering the River Tyne. Taken from Marsden Bay, South Shields.

I'd love to get around your blogs more often and respond to comments etc., but alas my time is extremely limited. Many thanks for your continued support.

PENTAX K100D 1 second F/22.0 ISO 200 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

Use control and your mouse scroll wheel to zoom the picture/page, then control and 0 to reset to normal size.

Even though I may not be able to visit or respond daily, I always welcome your comments or critiques.
