Photographer:  Martin Bishop – “Waves on Tynemouth Pier at Sunset

I love the contrast of the soft clouds and light compared to the power of the waves crashing against the wall in this image. There is a peacefulness in this despite nature’s fury and that one seagull which elicits calm amongst the turmoil.

Really beautiful shot with lovely light skimming across the top of the wall. If I may be a bit whimsical here, the shapes the waves make up the side of the pier look like a giant’s feet stomping as if to remind us who is in power here.
