Night Photography in Newcastle
I was in Newcastle for work and decided to take my camera along in case the opportunity arose to do some photography. By the time I finished it was dark but this meant instead of sleeping I could wander around a strange city in the dark and attempt my first go at night photography.
Starting from the hotel in Gatehead, I walked towards the huge flour mill and now the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, then onwards over the Millennium Bridge.
I walked up and down the river for a bit looking for perfect reflections of the lights on the water and the best way of including the bridges in one photo.
A boat moored to the promenade was perfectly positioned to capture both the bridges and the reflection in the water.
After the river, I walked up towards All Saints Church and back along Tyne Bridge. The bridge was a bit worrying, with crude poems scribbled on the railing to convince people not to jump. I finished the walk looking out over the river towards Sage Gateshead.
