Gateshead: Millennium Bridge.

Gateshead: Millennium Bridge. 

The Gateshead Millennium Bridge is a pedestrian and cyclist tilt bridge spanning the River Tyne in England between Gateshead's Quays arts quarter on the south bank, and the Quayside of Newcastle-upon-Tyne on the north bank. The award-winning structure was conceived and designed by architects Wilkinson Eyre and structural engineers Gifford. The bridge is sometimes referred to as the 'Blinking Eye Bridge' or the 'Winking Eye Bridge' due to its shape and its tilting method. In terms of height, the Gateshead Millennium Bridge is slightly shorter than the neighbouring Tyne Bridge, and stands as the sixteenth tallest structure in the city.
(Wikipedia).

So it's a "drawbridge" that tilts up out of the way? Interesting--never heard of such a thing.

Nice capture!

Nice one Phil. Good view of the bridge from the Gateshead side. A lovely (colourful) area of the North East best visited in summer. Right now the main colours are dark grey, light grey, brown, black and of course grey! My local pub on the other side is the Pitcher & Piano, very impressive but a bit pricey.
