Photographer's Note

At last, I have been away for a few days, AND remembered to pack the tripod ! Despite the temptation to avoid the cold, up the ISO and quickly use the camera hand held, I did persist, and did use it !

This is a stitch of just two shots of Durham Cathedral. There is no casual photography allowed inside the cathedral, which is good, and bad, all at once, as it is a beautiful building.

So I give you an exterior view. Since the daytime weather was inclement, I offer a night shot instead, though from the number of candela available it hardly counts as night-time. Despite it is such an obvious view, across the Green, ( between the Cathedral and the Castle ) I have checked all 16 pages of existing posts, and there is none other, so enjoy !

I quote, loosely, from Wiki:
'Built between 1093 and 1490, Durham Cathedral, is principally Norman and is regarded as "the incomparable masterpiece of Romanesque architecture". The interior is “overwhelmingly impressive”.
