Day #1978

Day #1978Title: Green And Pleasant Land
Location: High Urpeth, County Durham
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Something rather rural today, made during a hot, sunny geocaching walk around the pretty landscape near Urpeth with Alistair. The terrain was varied, the caching was fun and the fresh air was wonderful. Read more about today’s Rural Ramble.

Day #1977

Day #1977Title: Urban Cammo
Location: Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: A really tiring but fun day. Alistair took me on a 21-mile round trip bike ride to Newburn via both banks of the Tyne. We refuelled half way with tea and chocolate fudge cake. Then indulged in a swift pint at The Tyne pub at the bottom of the Ouseburn Valley before heading home. This camouflaged drainpipe was among some other graffiti on a wall on Maling Street, which I passed while toiling up yet another hill!

Day #1976Title: Safety First, Fashion Later
Location: Maker Space, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: We had a busy evening, first meeting friends in the pub for an early feed, then helping to pack up everything in Maker Space to prepare for their move to new, bigger premises in the centre of Newcastle. Alistair donned these “fashionable” safety glasses before taking down some shelving. I’ve had a fiddle with cross processing to give it a slightly different feel.

Day #1975Title: The Harbourmaster’s Window
Location: St Peter’s Basin, Newcastle
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Our 10 mile geocaching bike ride today took us along the Walker and Byker stretch of the Tyne. St Peter’s Basin is always good for pictures (last seen on Day #1539). This time around, the window of the Harbourmaster’s House, with its colourful clapboard sides, took my fancy.

Day #1974Title: OW!
Location: North East Aircraft Museum, Sunderland
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: We enjoyed a leisurely lunch in the pub with friends from the Newcastle Photowalk group, then decided to walk some of it off by climbing the Penshaw Monument nearby. But the weather wasn’t up to much, so we went to the North East Aircraft Museum just outside Sunderland for a look round. This is a detail of one of the roundels under the wing of a plane outside the main hangar. Read more about today’s outing.

Day #1973Title: Clear For Takeoff
Location: Civic Centre, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: After a couple of hours at the new Maker Space venue today, Alistair and I embarked on a long geocaching walk around Newcastle and to find some images for the day. We passed the Civic Centre as the sun was blazing down – the sculpture of these geese taking off from  the pond made a great addition to the scene. It also makes a perfect shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #29 – Things With Wings.

Day #1972Title: The Rusty Clasp
Location: Royal Quays Marina, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was a fantastically sunny day so Alistair and I decided to cycle to Tynemouth along the river. We stopped off at various points along the way for pictures and geocaches. This scene was on a piece of old machinery on the quayside at Royal Quays Marina.
