The Tempest #4

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

A monochromatic melancholic meander with meteorological meaning around South Shields and its surrounding areas, a short eight frame series.

Some 12 miles distant to the west, Penshaw Monument, the Earl of Durham's famous Grecian folly/monument, is a guiding signpost, a landmark in the north east of England. It can be viewed from almost every direction, and when travelling you know you have arrived home when you spot Penshaw.

This is how it looked from Cleadon Hills in South Shields before those ominous clouds delivered water......lots of it!
