We lived at Roker for many years and so I was often at the sea front taking pictures. However we moved away in 2008 and I haven’t been there photographing very much since. This piece of modern art on the promenade was new to me when I took a group I was teaching there to take images for a piece of creative art work. I’m not sure how I feel about this kind of thing.
This is more the kind of shot I liked to take at Roker, early morning. I was out very early this particular Spring morning and everything was looking promising for a really nice sunrise. I took around 30 shots as the sky was changing. Then ……… nothing. A blanket of grey descended across the sky right to the horizon blocking out the sun. Typical !
Of course, there were often stormy skies. This was taken one afternoon. I was sitting in the car watching the changing light as the rain hammered down. Eventually, the rain all but stopped and there was a break in the heavy continuous cloud cover that let some light through and created this shot. I love the way the light shines through the wave tops. This shot was used as a wall-paper behind the reception desk of a hotel.
