NZ4347 : Blast Beach

taken 8 years ago, 3 km from Cold Hesledon, County Durham, Great Britain

Blast Beach
Blast Beach
The clean-up of colliery waste has been extensive but this northern corner of the beach still retains a bank of coal waste seen on the right. The metal-toothed object in the foreground is part of a mine conveyor belt. Old bricks and concrete have been rounded by the sea and provide bright splashes of colour among the natural rocks and shiny lumps of coal.
Many of my photographs here are a tribute to, and inspired by, the work of Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen who documented the changes between 1998 and 2002 in her exhibition of stunning photographs: 'The Coal Coast' LinkExternal link
