Underneath the arches

By mrswoolybill
From a very enjoyable walk along the Gateshead Quayside, starting at Dunston and heading eastward.
This was photographed from the road, getting low down and pointing the camera through railings.
Thanks for looking,

More bridges than you can shake a stick at.
There must be at least seven including the concrete ones.

Anyway, this is quietly satisfying. Not a pixel out of place.

Quote:More bridges than you can shake a stick at.

I'm seeing six here - we are east of the Scotswood, so we have the Redheugh (concrete pillar on the left), King Edward, Metro, High Level, Swing and Tyne. The Blinking Eye is out of sight, I couldn't get an angle to include it as well.
Anyway, 'quietly satisfying' is what I aim for. There's quite enough deliberately concocted drama in the world.
Thanks guys and good morning.

With so many bridges there must be a lot of people who think the grass is greener (or even exists) on the other side.
Beautifully composed and captured Moira. A black bag image ? SmileSmile

A brain-teaser trying to work out how many bridges you included in your image. I see now you have given us a list. To quote a well-used phrase "a well filled frame" along with nice tones.

The Tyne must be a very troubled water(way) with so many bridges over it. Or is it that Geordies are just lazy and the thought of having to walk an extra 200 yards along the riverbank in order to cross was just too awful?🤔

When I was there a few years back (10 years, to be exact - can't believe it's so long!) on a Camera Club outing, I thought of just how many bridges there were in that area crossing the Tyne.
A great viewpoint and well-framed image, Moira 👍

Shows them very well indeed Moira and a particularly good viewpoint which isn't used very often.

Thanks again folks. This is I think the only bridges shot in the series that hasn't ben flipped!
The bridges serve various users - ordinary road traffic, buses, metro, various railway routes. If just on is closed (usually the Redheugh in gale conditions) we just about notice the difference!
