A View Of Durham....

Michael one of our drivers is an avid photographer and we thought we would show some of his great shots of Durham and the North East of England as he snaps his way around the city, as he picks up and drops passengers off.

 

Below are a few of Durham Through the eyes of a taxi driver. We will add more photos as Michael makes his way round this great & beautiful city, and of course we will be more than happy to take you to any of the photo view points of Durham should you wish to snap away yourself.

This was taken from High Gate Bridge, looking towards the Gates Shopping Centre and the Gala Theatre and Walker Gate Complex. Michael wanted to capture the moving traffic and used a long shutter speed to get the effect of the traffic whizzing through the lights.

As well as taking photo's, Michael also spends a little time editing some of them. He used an HDR filter on a shot from Frawellgate Riverside to get this great shot of the river, Cathedral & Castle.

This shot of the Cathedral poking out of the trees was taken again from Prebends Bridge. Even though the bridge is close to the Cathedral it gives you an idea of its size and great position looking over the city.

This is a shot from the top of Pit Lane in Brandon, looking over towards Ushaw Moor and Broompark. It was taken at 23:30 on the longest exposure time Michael's camera had at 60secs. The shot was taken in complete darkness so shows how long his shutter had to be open to capture this great image.
