Durham Cathedral

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 26 July 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Durham Cathedral standing on the high ground above the River Wear. The central tower was all wrapped up as important restoration and maintenance work was carried out.

Three shot HDR made in Photomatix Pro (then half ruined by a boatload of over sharpening drat!)

PENTAX K100D 1/125 second F/6.7 ISO 200 36 mm (35mm equiv.)
