A stroll along North Gare

As it was such a nice day, which is quite unusual for Hartlepool, Margaret and I decided to walk off our Sunday lunch with a stroll along North Gare. The weather was sunny with lots of dramatic cloud away in the distance and to make the day even better, the wind was warm; it’s normally a cold northeaster in this area!. The wind though, was a bonus, as it attracted some professional looking wind surfers to the beach; always a recipe for colourful photos.

North Gare encompasses a strip of sand dune, which is accessed by crossing one of the fairways belonging to Seaton Carew Golf Club. One should always be prepared to duck if ever “fore” comes drifting down the wind, followed by a speeding, will dent your head, golf ball!.

All photos taken with an Olympus E1 with either a 14-54mm or a 9-18mm Zuiko lens.

  1. Hi Dave, the B & W one is really nice and could be even better if you sort the sky, the Burn-in is a little patchy (sorry but such a good photograph needs a little touch were the blotches are – if it is my monitor then double sorry for the comment)
    Image – 5 & 10 are great; love the sky.
    Nice to see that being in UK is not holding you back!

  2. Hi David
    Thanks for your comments and let me tell you that your monitor is ok. I did have some trouble with the sky as the left hand edge was bright blue and the eye was always going to be attracted to it. Maybe I will try and improve it later. Sorry that your trip to find the rock art came to a drastic halt. Better luck next time.

  3. Hi david, i liked the photos and wondered if you used polarizing filter for the clouds to come out of the photo this way ?

    1. Hi E. S.
      No I did not use a polariser, it was just one of those days with sunshine and threatening clouds. It was really magical light.
      Thanks for dropping in.

  4. Hi, that pictures makes me wonder. Really wonderful! I liked the way you take angle in picture 1 and 5. Cool! By the way thanks for sharing David
