Great shot of a lovely church.
Greetings from England

I love the colours in this photo. It's like the whole setting is one big rainbow!
In the centre of the high alter is an 18 year old Jesus holding the cross of St. George. Many soldiers from Ripon killed during the First World War would have been about 18; therefore Jesus is shown as the same age
The monkey seat is where the Mayor sits. When the seats were being carved, the carver put a monkey here because he though the Mayor was corrupt. A few years later, the carver became Mayor himself.
Very charming view
It's like copying Hallstatt in China, though on a more modest level :)
The mist is great.
I agree, but it was about the only time the sun came out during the trip!
