Durham Castle and Palace Green are part of my life in Durham City. When quiet a contemplative area of the city.
The snowdrdrops were fantastic, hundreds and hundreds of the "fair maides of February". There was a church on this site long before the abbey was built and there are wonderful wall paintings inside showing scenes of life on the land in medieval times. church
2021 was snowy January and the calm conditions meant the snow hung in the trees.
Always spectacular if conditions are favourable and on this occasion, in November, they were.
Such an iconic location and always pleases.
Linisfarne has so much to offer the photographer in winter. Captivating light, winter migrants, a variety of coastal landscapes, and the historic buildings, including the beautiful, quiet St. Paul's Church.
A small church, much altered in 19th century and well worth a visit. The wall paintings remind me of the novel by JL Carr, "A month in the Country".
As I set up the tripod and worked on exposure factors light bellied brent geese chuntered in the shallows of low tide. A delightful sound of wild nature.
Northuberland has so many photographic opportunities and cloud build up over the Cheviots seen from Lindisfarne is one of such sights.
What a place! At the west end of Liathac on the road to Diabeg, who lived and worked here and what was were their daily life?
A cold and snowy January 2021.
The old buildings have character, colour and texture.
A full moon and clear starry night in December the floodlit cathedral is a prominent feature of Ripon.
This very moving stature shows the crucified Christ lying in his mother's arms. Out of focus blue lights seem to give the appearance of Mary's tears.
Christmas lights twinkle below the beatiful roof vaults of this small and intimate cathedral.
A chance image in December.
The mill chimney looms out from the fog on a cold winter day.
The sun was setting over the hills and the tide cut Holy Island off from the mainland; became an island for a few hours.
Very cold, foggy, winter as the mill ruins are approached from Surrender Bridge.
The ruins seem even more striking on a foggy winter day.
Maiden Castle is an amazing construction of defnsive earthwoks, near Dorchester.
The earthworks can look quite abstract.
Very complex ridges of earth and all built by hand.
