Photographer's Note

I remember I have used here once the title “Postcard from Middlesbrough” and a British TE member was laughing that it somehow does not go together since postcards are usually sent from attractive holiday destinations and Middlesbrough is seen in the UK as something opposite. So I am trying now to be more general, using Teesside instead.

I mentioned numerous times that North East England is a great place to photograph unusual bridges and I have showed you most of them many times already. This one, Newport Tees Bridge I have showed as well even from the same POV HERE or a different one HERE. However, the previous photos were taken when the bridge was green. It has been painted couple of years ago and now it is red and white but at night it is lit mainly in purple while the middle section is lit in all colors of rainbow which is not well seen here. The change of night illuminations was tempting me so many times and today finally I got there again. Sadly, I didn’t find a better POV. It looks spectacular from A19 bridge but pedestrians are not allowed there.

I had several versions, some where the bridge was better lit and/or reflected but it didn’t have the blue hour mood yet. Here it has more of the mood but the setting becomes quite dark, since the surrounding is natural without any lights. Quite scary to walk there too.
