365 Day Photograph Challenge: Day 66

An ambition fulfilled.

It has been a long-held ambition of mine to photograph the Newcastle/Gateshead Quayside at night. The Tyne crossings are amazing feats of engineering and they all complement each other. Even The Sage, a live music and performing arts venue that opened in 2004, was designed to be an accompaniment to the bridges. Undoubtedly, the quayside must be one of the most photographed locations in the city, and it is easy to see why as the architecture is stunning!

My photographs may not break new ground, but it was great fun to finally get to do a night shoot on the quayside, and to practise my night photography.

The majestic Tyne Bridge rises high above the waters of the Tyne (opened 1928). Further upstream the Swing Bridge (1876), High Level Bridge (1849) and QEII Metro Bridge (1981) can be seen.

I hope to be back for round two, soon!
