Woo hoo! Down again today to another new low for the year.
As it was a nice bright sunny day, I decided to make the most of it before I go back to work tomorrow, and took myself to York for the afternoon. I went to the Minster, and for once coughed up the £9 admission charge to have a good look around. The ticket is one of those that’s valid for a year, so it’s not too bad. And as photography is allowed inside the magnificent building, I didn’t begrudge it one little bit. I had a good look around, and got some images that might be worth showing off – we’ll see when I’ve had time to look at them properly, but for now, here’s one shot looking straight up at the domed ceiling of the Chapter House, using my fisheye lens:
There’s an excellent display in the vaults under the Minster, which shows its history, how it’s been restored in various places, and its general place in history. Worth a look if you’re there.
After the Minster, I had a general wander, then took my knees in my hands, err, well, not literally, but I did take a chance on walking up the steps to Clifford’s Tower and indeed the steps inside. Great view from up there, which I’ll demonstrate when I sort out the pictures.
Then there was time for a little more wandering before getting the train home, and here I am.
