For those of you who don't know Paddy's Hole can be found on the southern side of the mouth of the river Tees near Redcar. The area known as South Gare which is an area of reclaimed land where construction began in 1861 and finished in 1884. Five million tons of blast furnace slag was used in the construction from the Teeside blast furnace which has now sadly closed. .
The area is a photographers paradise for both wildlife and landscape genras with several harbours, lighthouse, and other photographic interests. It's an area you can get lost in thought as you see subjects that lie forgotten for decades to be reclaimed by natural elements. Jennifer you see in the midground has been photographed thousands of times by many a photographer and over the years she has shrunk in size. Photographs over time document the changes to our landscape whether it be natural or man-made. Our future generations can look back on our images as we do look back on our predecessors and that story of time can be told visually. Photography is not only an interest it's also our history book.
