Like some watch tower of ancient times, this stack in Marsden Bay in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, just caught a fast moving spot light of the sun through the clouds.

The broken rock and pebbles on the shore seemed to be mirrored by the clouds as they raced over.

Converted into pinhole black and white to highlight the almost prehistoric feel to this bit of coast line

Best viewed large.

    Your clouds take the eye so far away… Need a moor pin that big to stay anchored in reality.

    Wow, you’re good at this, very, very good. Wonderful capture. Like a backdrop to 10000yrs BC, so much detail.
