Photographer's Note

From my previous posts from North East England you may have learned that the company which built the famous Harbour Bridge in Sydney has build a prototype of this bridge in Newcastle upon Tyne, a smaller version of it of course. Another tourist attraction in Australia are the Twelve Apostles along Great Ocean Road north of Melbourne. Legend says that before creating it God has made a prototype, again near Newcastle upon Tyne: it is called Marsden Rock located in South Tyneside. Well one can argue if this rock resembles an Apostle or rather a shape similar to rock formations in Love Valley, Cappadocia?
I am not entirely happy with the composition, it was hard to include the sea (at the low tide) and some of the orange rocks and at the same time to show that the rock is separated from the cliffs. But at least you have an idea about this place. By the way this rock is not the actual Marsden Rock but one near it. And of course I made up the legend.

PS As the Tyne Bridge is much smaller than the Harbour Bridge so are the summer temperatures in England half of those in Australia :(
