Durham Cathedral (N.E. England)

My “better half” and I recently visited North East England. Needless to say my camera gear went with me, but was not used often, as the weather was a bit dull and the quality of light was poor. Fortunately there were the occasional breaks in the cloud cover and I manages to capture a few images when, for a fleeting moment, the light quality improved dramatically.

The image below of Durham Cathedral, was capture about 1 hour before sunset, when the “soft” sunlight illuminated the west facing towers of this beautiful Sanctuary. Building started on this magnificent place of worship in 1093 and was completed some 40 years later.

    • Thanks Mark. When we were discussing your trip to Billingham, it put me in the mood to visit N.E.England. We also visited York and Whitby

      • Jim, unfortunately, Billingham did not yield any great photos for me. The skies were unusually clear (from what I was told) but it was very windy during my time there. Combined with the fact that I was in town for business, I did not get to shoot the countryside as I wanted.
