Newcastle upon Tyne

I spent some time in Newcastle upon Tyne today.

From the late 17th century shipbuilding was one of the great industries associated with Newcastle so I was looking for a picture which combined shipbuilding and the River Tyne.

This view shows the Swan Hunter shipyard in Wallsend and Royal Fleet Auxiliary support tanker Orangeleaf.

I was trying to do something combining the river, the colourful cranes and the tanker.

To compress everything together I used a 28 – 200m zoom set at the 200mm end.
