Goodnight Gateshead

A chance visit to Newcastle gave me the opportunity to capture this lovely evening scene by the Quayside.

Ah so you did return to capture still water. This should be an award winner, dare I say, perfect!

It's quite ironic that this shot portrays still and calm when in reality Newcastle nightlife is very lively. Perhaps this is just the night about to wake!

Best regards

Cheers Andy , I hope you have a good one also.

Thank you Beyer

Kenny, it was pure chance tha had me back there just as the conditions were so nice. Having been back twice deliberately only to be disappointed at the conditions it was deserved I guess though even on this occasion the sun was hidden away by that bank of cloud to the right. Earlier it looked as though there would be a colourful sky across the whole scene. Perhaps though on reflection ( pun intended ) it might have been too busy a shot with that in there also. I'm happy with this and will only try to improve on this if I once again happen to be in the area at the right time.

best wishes and my thanks to you all.

Third time lucky Sam*!!?? I think you won this time mate;-) I think the sky is ok, that bank of cloud may have hidden the sun but for me it fills that area nicely. It looks like you had pole position there Sam,were you the only one shooting ?? Nice work mate, well worth the wait.
