I am an enthusiastic amateur. I take mainly 35mm film. My photographic aspiration is to produce landscape photos that present the subject in the most pleasing and natural way possible. I no longer participate in the forum due to the absolute pig's ear that G**gle have made of it. I appreciate sincere comments and will endeavour to visit the galleries of those who leave them. COPY AND PASTED COMMENTS WILL BE IGNORED AND/OR DELETED.

Thanks Marilyn. There were signs up in the main part of the cathedral banning photography, but as I threw a £5 note in the collection box, I felt justified in shooting "almost outside" in the cloister. It's a great place, inside and out.


It was quite a while since I last visited and I am glad we had time to visit before our holiday. The cathedral offers many scenes like this that are a gift to the photographer - a fitting resting place for our northern saint, St. Cuthbert.

Thanks Marilyn.


That's lovely Marilyn. Solid gold? I'll take a chisel if I ever visit.


Excellent framing and I love the distorted miniature, Marilyn. I am guessing that air pollution is pretty bad there. It even looks misty on the aerial map right of your photo. I looks a fascinating place to visit though.


I'm glad you enjoyed this, Keith, Judit, Dany, Antonio, and Mira. Finally our snow is melting! It has been a long winter.

Best wishes, Marilyn

I can almost feel the wind dear Amelia, such a lovely blue sky, so well captured here. You really are out and about aren't you? :) Hugs, Sarah

I agree with you entirely Keith. There's just something about the light on a day like this that gladdens the heart. Inland, one would prefer to be indoors by the fire! :))

Cheers, Amelia

Thanks Amelia. Volcano causing large rocky mass to fall into the sea? That's what happened on Tenerife about 190,000 years ago (I read the tourist board). If you zoom out on the map right of the photo you will see that the northern part of the crater is missing, where Mt Teide later grew. I bet that made a bit of a splash!

Regards, Keith

Oh yes! I remember now. How could one forget the storms on the East Coast in December! Our worst storms in Shropshire were in February - we mostly escaped the worst in December.

Many thanks to you, Christos! Your kind words are appreciated. :) Wishing you a lovely week ahead,

Mary Alice
