This is a crazy photo, I know. I was a little bit uncertain if I should share it at all. But then again: I take photos for fun so I can afford being controversial.

The point of view is interesting because it allows into the frame the new castle up on hill, or rather as it is actually called “upon Tyne”. It neighbours the characteristic tower of the cathedral and finally it includes the Swing Bridge, one of the unique bridges which cross the River Tyne from Gateshead to Newcastle. Hence the title. The execution was quite challenging. These strong lights were somehow pointing towards me. For the first time I have seen something like that. In addition, the passing cars, which I thought will add a nice touch… they didn’t want to cooperate. Some of the lights contributed extremely yellow color, I know about sodium lights etc but it got out of control here. This yellow looks nice with the old architecture but not that well on the industrial structures here.

This view complements my previous photo which was taken from a POV nearby.
