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
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".
