What a lovely series and some images brought back happy memories of living and working in the North East many moons ago. We'll be up there soon on vacation for a couple of weeks so this is very timely - looks like a visit to the Riverside is definitely going to be called for!

Thanks for starting this thread and best regards, Neil.

Thanks Neil - just some of the masses of photos I have taken over the past few years. Including a couple from the odd Dyxum challenge or two of course !

What a great series. #2,3,4,5 and 8 look a bit soft to me and #6 is simply beautiful . The last shot - #14 - is very good but might need some perspective/rotation correction. I see you watched the window on the right carefully, the entrance for the trains is what i see first though. The photo deserves it. Looking forward to some more.

Inventive use of the night time lighting to present a very colourful and dramatic series, I was disappointed in the lack of fog on the Tyne though

Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment - I've been meaning to start this thread for quite a while now !

@MichelVA - please find an updated version of 14 which is hopefully a bit straighter !

@Paul Simpson - what a couple of beauties ! Thanks for adding them, it's always good to see a different perspective to my own.

@AlanFromBangor - here's one with some fog in it - unfortunately not much of the River Tyne it's off the bottom of the photo !

1. King Edward VII Rail Bridge

Pedestrian walkway on the High Level Bridge. Designed by Robert Stephenson and built between 1847 and 1849, it is the first major example of a wrought iron tied arch or bow-string girder bridge.

The road is one way, buses only. The upper level carries the railway.


George Stephenson
