Not the best morning in Sunderland today. I was going to go further afield but glad i took plan B and went to Roker. The weather was rubbish as was the so called sun rise but I thought I may as well get on that beach and get something since I was here. I knew it was going to have to be a black and white image as thats what nature was presenting me but I needed contrast as there was no light to speak of. These pools in the sand reflected the grey sky to give me the contrast thankfully so at least I came home with something.
