Red Arrows above Newcastle

.

.
The Red Arrows of the RAF grace Newcastle with their presence every year for The Great North Run which took place on Sunday. This shot was taken into the sun causing silhouettes. Old Saints Church can be seen to the left and the top of the Tyne Bridge can just be seen above the skyline in the middle of the picture.

  1. The Red Arrows passed right over the pitch during my sons game for Heaton Hawks on sunday and it caused a surreal moment when everyone, including the kids, just froze with the noise and the whole spectacle. Time just seemed to stop for those 4 or 5 seconds.

    Keep up the good work on this great site.

  2. This is amazing. Were you lucky, or were you waiting for this? I can't believe it was sheer luck that you got such a great shot - but if it was, I'm incredibly jealous :)
