The Newcastle and Gateshead Millennium Bridge (UK) with The Sage Music venue and The Tyne Bridge in the background.
This was one of a series of pics I took on first night shoot, I’d only had the camera a week or so and I’m really, really pleased with how this has turned out.

    The spot you are standing on to take this, I have stood there hundreds of times.

    Great photograph Kev, the colours are gorgeous.

  • Thanks David,
    I’ve seen loads of pics taken from the same spot so I thought I had to try and re-create it. The weather was on my side, it was a very cool, still night. Taken the first time I ventured out with my dSLR with an aim to getting some good Tyne pics.

    I’m hooked so I might see you there one dusk :-)

    Hey mate, this is good, not done much night photography, If I did this I would be proud, I’m sure you are Kev…

  • Thanks Jason,
    considering this was from my first real ‘shoot’, I’m very proud of the reaction this pic is getting, both on RB and elsewhere.

    Wow! Kev this is a fantastic shot almost looks like somewhere out of a sci fi movie – Well done!

  • Thanks Andi,
    after looking at some of your pics I can see there’s plenty of inspiration to be gained from you.

    THE best I’ve seen…..I live there and never seen one as good as this…well done!!

  • Thanks,
    I think a lot of it has to do with the near perfect night when I took it.
