Sunday in Whitley Bay and Saint Mary's Lighthouse

Notes on my fine-art photography activities in the Northeast of England and beyond

Sunday In Whitley Bay
Sunday In Whitley Bay

Living in the Northeast of England enables me to try out different photographic techniques in a wide variety of outdoor settings. Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, I can hop on a train westward to the Tynedale and Northumberland countryside, go east on the local Metro train to reach a number of seaside towns and villages along the North Sea coast , as well as various bus/train options for urban exploration in the city, Durham, Sunderland, Teesside etc.

A couple of weeks ago, we had a family Sunday day out to Whitley Bay and a bracing spring walk to Saint Mary's Lighthouse. My young son was keen to see if the seals would at their usual basking spot on the rocks next to the lighthouse (they were!). I tested out my 400mm zoom lens to capture a few of these seals. Feeling energetic, we made our way up to the top of the lighthouse, climbing the seemingly endless steps - but what a spectacular view when we reach the summit. I have some good shots of downward and upward views of the inside of the tower.

A great day out, that combined my photography with keeping the family happy too. More of my Whitley Bay and lighthouse FineArtPhotography images are available as Wallart ArtForSale via my online Store
