North East Icons

I’ve still got a load of shots to process from a trip to the North East of England last October, I really must pull my finger out and get them done as I think there are a few blog posts I can do with them. I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions but I do aim to be a bit more productive this year, not just with my photography but with other things too such as playing my guitar more. In the meantime here are a couple of new shots from our short visit to Newcastle and Gateshead plus a reworking of a previous shot to the same area.

The Quayside at Newcastle is a great place for a walk with views up and down the Tyne and views across to Gateshead. The Tyne Bridge is an iconic structure which can easily be confused with Sydney Harbour Bridge but that is understandable as they were designed by the same company.

The Sage over the river in Gateshead is another interesting structure. The above photo is a reworking of an old one – you can see the original along with a few other shots of the area in this previous blog post.

Speaking of iconic structures in the North East such a blog post wouldn’t be complete without a shot of the Angel of the North which can be found just off the A1 near Gateshead.

Happy New Year to you all!
