Newcastle and Gateshead by Night

A few photos I took recently when I took part in a Night Lights Photography Walk course with Neil Atkinson after I was given a voucher as a gift.

I have to say Neil was great and I really enjoyed the evening.  I’m pleased with the photos too!

I’ll post some more soon :-)

Derwenthaugh Park

When I was a kid this would have been a view of slag heaps from the coke works that used to be where the park is now.  The difference is just unbelievable, if you didn’t know you would never guess what the scenery here used to be like.

This is also a great place to spot Red Kites and a dog walker told me he often sees deer in the corner of the field near where I got my shot.  Definitely more trips down there to be made!

I saw the mist this morning from the window and grabbed my camera.  Unfortunately by the time I got down there most of the mist had burned off.

Foxglove Macro

I’ve also started to use and you can find this image along with some of the others from this site on there.

If you’re interested they’re available to buy as a variety of products from prints to posters and postcards to framed prints.  The images on redbubble do not feature the watermark in the corner of the picture that you can see here.

Happy shopping!

Galleria Italia

This is the ‘Galleria Italia’ inside the AGO – Art Gallery of Toronto in Canada.

We had an amazing day there, although it would take a lot more than a day to see the whole gallery!

Sadly, when I was there the usual photography exhibition was closed.  It was amusing though to get directions to where we could see some photography;

“Head down to the end of this corridor, turn left and you’ll see some Rembrandts.  Head past the Dutch Masters and you’ll find it on the right.”

All delivered in a German-Canadian accent!

I hope I can make it back there some day to have a look at all that we didn’t have time to catch the first time around.
