The view along the Lees headland just south of Sandhaven Beach in South Shields, Tyne and wear.

This stretch has this wonderful aspect of looking like fingers reaching into the sea, trying to hold on the to the eroding shoreline

    Fabulous! This evokes feelings of aloneness and stillness, even with the “wind” and the waves…

  • Thank you Dar, the wind and the fast moving light made this a wonderful place just to stand and watch, even worth the wet trousers to get this shot lol

    great shot CIH, you’re so right about the erosion, it’s frightening how quickly the coastline changes at this location.

  • Thanks h and was down the road from Whitby to Scarborough yesterday, that is really frightening in it’s erosion, the have moved on main road further in land because of it
