Winter sunshine in Durham

A nice Sunday afternoon around the streets of my local County capital of Durham in the northeast of England yesterday with my lovely wife and oldest grandson Joe now six who wanted to visit the beautiful Cathedral.This 900 year old Norman structure perched high above the river wear,is declared a World heritage site.Having my grandson with me evoked many memories of my own childhood,where at his age I spent many a day with my father around the same streets learning photography.Having parked my car on a hillside this time opposite the cathedral,we were greeted to this fabulous view of the cathedral just as the last rays of a winter sunshine cascaded upon its facade.Quite a lot of maintenance work is being done on the building and as such it has had scaffolding on various parts of its structure now for quite some time,but its appeal to me me is like iron filings to a magnet! I just never tire of its magnificence.Again,the little D70s at 1/30th f11 iso200DSC_0018a
