Heugh Breakwater

Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 9 October 2017 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

The Heugh Breakwater pier at Hartlepool, just a few mile south of us in South Shields. It was a misty and foggy morning but I'm hoping that you might spot the wind turbines and the redundant steelworks of Redcar in the distance.

That shadow to the right of your point of infinity is bleek but yet just fairly visible.
The whole photo shows your mastery of this look at beauty and reality !~

A great image. I love the atmosphere. I can barely see it in the distance. A sort of spooky effect!
