First, pausing on Shortland Esplanade, watching the sun rise. View attachment 43622 sunrise by kyte50, on Flickr On to Newcastle Pool and Beach. The clouds looked great, the beach not so good. Gulls were having their morning ablutions. I always seem to get there at bathtime View attachment 43623 cloudreflect by kyte50, on Flickr I stayed down at the beach for quite some time, but was shooting with other cameras as well. Next.. on to Wheeler Place. This is located near the new (well not so new anymore) Newcastle City town hall (not in photograph) the old Newcastle City town hall (clock tower visible) and the Civic Theatre, which is used for live shows, concerts, etc. View attachment 43624 townhallclock by kyte50, on Flickr On the other side of Wheeler Place, the Civic Theatre, and restaurant/bistro. Its been restored to its 1930s glory and is just gorgeous inside. I was way too early for that. Not much else to shoot in this part of town and I am on my way to Jesmond Park View attachment 43625 civic by kyte50, on Flickr Flowers in the park before I return home.

Its sunny again now, but I don't think I'll be going out again. My day began at 5am, I was home again by 7.30 and now, I think I need a nap. Interestingly, I also shot with the K-5 and the X100 for the sunrise... and those shots were generally rubbish, I am just crap at using those cameras. Time to sell I think.
