Gateshead Millennium Bridge in action

I’ve been down to the Quayside on many occasions, but somehow I’ve never managed to be there to get a good view of the Millennium Bridge doing its graceful tilting thing. I’ve seen it open a few times, but there were crowds in the way, or I was inconveniently standing on the wrong bridge at the time. But today was different. I was there at exactly the right time to see it open to allow a boat thingy[1] pass through. I even had a suitable camera with me to get some photographs of the occasion.

[1] Sorry, I’m sure it’s a yacht or something, but it’s not really my area, you know…
