Roker Pier

  • Description

    A rare colour photo (I haven't had a chance to make a good B&W version yet). Quite like this image - there are some fantastic images of this subject on Flickr. Please see this wonderful image by Jeff Vyse (which was my inspiration)."> I had wonderful colours, but not quite the perfect dramatic sky for a long exposure. The sea was dead calm and at low tide, which limited my composition a little. In all I spent all of yesterday evening, about 3 hours, on the beach, around and above the pier on the north side of the mouth of the river Wear. The light got better and better towards sunset. Really struggled with the long exposures due to the wind and a faulty shutter release. So all my photos were limited to max. 30secs, using the timer on the camera to trigger, as I had no way of using my faulty shutter release and therefore bulb in manual mode.
