So we visited the site and tried some test shots. Currently there is so little streetlighting casting light onto the location that I would need twice the number of portable lights I have to light the area effectively. So glad we tried that ahead of Friday :pensive:. With that considered I propose we use the square at the North end of the Stockton infinity bridge instead?
It's a nice spot over there to be honest...

If that’s no good then the area Mbro side of transporter bridge is well lit or it was last time I was over there.

if we are definitely doing North Shore side of infinity bridge then we can arrange for mini convoy to pick up @Bandit Harris at a RV point (probably Portrack Lane) on our way

Sadly, with the UK weather doing its usual trick and turning garbage just when we don't need it to, this Friday photoshoot has been postponed :(

Hopefully we will rearrange shortly with better conditions.

I was half expecting this would happen. It will give me some time to clean her up though although by the time I get to Teeside she will possibly be dirty again. It seems that 90% of my driving is done when it's wet.

Wasn’t the worry of the drive that bothered me, just the thought of slush, salt and all the other crap spoiling the appearance of all these beauties
