An exceptionally high tide this evening which came to within a few centimetres of the path and road at Sunderland's Fish Quay, from where this photograph was taken. This was the scene as the full-time whistle was blown at the nearby Stadium of Light (Sunderland 0 - West Bromwich Albion 0)!

Taken early 50s in this wonderful view,Railway bridge can be just seen on the left

People who moan that the weathers 'too hot' can piss off.

The sculptured tree in the foreground is part of the Wearside Sculpture Trail.

The trail features a number of highly original works by Colin Wilbourne and Craig Knowles, situated between Wearmouth Bridge and Roker Marina.

The view from alongside the Fish Quay looking upstream towards Wearmouth Bridge.

I noticed the amazing colour in the sky so I jumped in my car and grabbed this before it disappeared. Handy spot 2 minutes away from my house.

The brilliant Red Arrows were back on Wearside this evening to help kick-off this year's airshow. Thousand's of people packed the seafront as they went through their daring displays
