Newcastle Waterscape at night in B&W

I saw really nice Black and White picture of bridge in London at my friend's apartment, and I decided to do the same idea on this picture I took in Newcastle.

 

Gateshead Millennium Bridge - the world's first and only tilting bridge!

 

Designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects and engineered by Gifford, the bridge takes its place at the end of a line of distinguished bridges across the River Tyne, including the Tyne Bridge and Robert Stephenson's High Level Bridge.

 

Linking Gateshead with Newcastle via Gateshead Quays (described as one of the best places in Europe by Tony Blair) and Newcastle's Quayside, the bridge not only serves a functional purpose as the River Tyne's only foot and cycle bridge, but its grace and engineering attract people from all over the world.

 

Location : Newcastle Upon Tyne, England

Device : Nikon D300

Note : Best viewed in the large format better view
