Photographer's Note

I have visited Finchale Priory, near Durham in July this year already. I was impressed with the ruins, but the light was rubbish, so I didnít share any photos from that trip with you. Today I revisited this beautiful place. It was a predominantly sunny day but even though judging from the map I thought the morning would be optimal time to be there, it appeared that the light was quite harsh, and there was plenty of shade around. There was a lot of light along the River Wear, which you see in this photo. Those few leaves in autumnal colors which were still holding on to the tree branches, were literally glowing in the sunshine. In a way it was good to have the trees already naked so that I could use them to frame the priory, but it was not easy to find a clearance good enough. In the end I had to resort to multiple exposures on the tripod to balance the exposure better, something what I rarely do nowadays.
