Tyne panorama

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

I went hoping for a nice sunset, some lovely reflections and the City lights just coming on but the wind spoiled the reflections and the clouds departed totally to leave a clear sky so I took this just to justify my going all the way there and left early. On a positive note though at least I still have something to try for and no doubt I'll keep returning until I get an image more like what I was aiming for. The detail is worth seeing in the original size version

There was quite a breeze at home Sam a bit on the cool side too. Maybe not what you wanted but a nice shot all the same, i would have been happy to come home with this.

Very nice panorama Sam, plenty of detail at full size. There's another man/woman/ghost at the right side of this photo taking almost the same photo as yours at the same time!!! Maybe he/she/it will upload it to Panoramio too ;)

I LIKE this one, of course.

I think it is a good image Sam and particularly like the bridges superimposed on each other. Regards Derek

Excellent Sam

You really have done this cityscape justice and makes a welcome change from your countryside shots. If this is not what you were after I cant wait to see the next one!

Regards

Kenny, what I'd like is a sky like this and reflections like my earlier attempt which was ok but lacked the colour and quality I am now able to produce. If only the place was a bit nearer home I'd probably manage it but since it relies on a high tide, a windless day and a good sunset then opportunities are few and far between, add to that a one and a half hour drive and walk to get there and set up and you see my dilemma. Still I ain't giving up yet ;o).

Cheers mate.

Thanks Ian, as they say everything comes to those that wait :o)

You have to be in it to win it Neil ;0), to be honest though mate staying at home was the right thing on this occasion. Cheers.

Thank you Mvaro, there were several others along the riverside, all equally disappointed with the poor light and windy conditions.

Thanks Derek, it's a composition I have done previously and with more success( see link in reply to Kenny) but that one was what I was trying to better so this by comparison was only a gesture to justify the travelling.

best wishes to you all, Sam :o)

May not have been what you set out for but a great view nonetheless. I never tire of the sight of these bridges.

I was lucky with m ynight shots as the water was like glass, but that's the luck of the draw.
