The Minster Door

A shot taken a few weeks ago on a windy and rainy night in York, but before the devastating flooding that has affected the city (and large swathes of northern England) in the last few days and weeks. To everyone impacted I hope that life returns to normal soon, in the meantime best wishes and take care:

Random York

This is my final post on our recent trip to York and is simply a random selection of images that I like and wanted to share, but that didn’t really fit in any of the other three posts on York:

The first three shots were all taken in “The Shambles” – the famous Medieval street that is one of those must do tourist attractions in York…..apparently…..;0)

My favourite image from above is the black and white shot of the cobbled street (entitled “Street Light” and just round the corner from The Shambles) that I took whilst waiting for the ghost walk to start. I like the light on this one and I think the conversion to mono has worked really well.

The multi-award winning “Ghost Hunt of York” (just one of a number that operate in the city) was excellent value…..not very scary, but entertaining and interesting. It was a very enjoyable way to pass an hour and half and if you get the chance I would definitely recommend it…..and no I’m not on commission.

Autumn York

A few shots of York in Autumn:

I don’t really want to say much about these, other than to say I think they sum-up what I like about Autumn…..fabulous colours and, when the sun shines, warm light.

The first shot was taken with my 15-85mm and the other five with my new 70-200mm.
