Exhibition lake

The exhibition park lake in Newcastle upon Tyne. This lake and the building in the centre of the photograph were created for the great exhibition of 1929. The building which is called the palace of arts is the only one still standing from the exhibition of 1929. Over the years the building has been a science museum but now hosts the Wylam brewery. The lake itself has gone from being a boating lake to a haven for wildlife. I took these photographs while heading to the hoppings on the town moor, which is just behind the palace of arts, in June 2019. If you look carefully you may see some of the rides in the background. I was well pleased with theses reflection shots.
