February, we went to Newcastle for a long weekend. There was plenty to see and do -its always good to be able to walk along a river – but there were many other good things to enjoy.
We stayed at a hotel by the river and alongside the Sage.
The Sage is a performing arts venue, which is incredibly beautiful and we had an amazing night out there at a folk concert where a large team of students played their pieces from their Folk Music and Traditions course at Newcastle University.
The Sage is in Gateshead (i.e., south of the Tyne), but this shot was taken from the Newcastle side on the north bank.
It was late afternoon, crisp, clear air and the building picked up all the colour from the sky; how lucky was I?
The shot is completely unretouched.
