I was very taken with the bishop and the rose window when you first showed it. I still like it now.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Me too - but all these show great clarity. the Beamish museum - beautiful colours and the far reaches of Scotland; I just want to go there!

A very enjoyable series David.
I'm going to pick a personal favourite 'cos it's fun to, September, I love the colourful minimalism but, in truth I like them all.
A couple of other things that caught my eye,
Opaque windows in January
Socks over stilettos in June
and of course I find December very interesting. It is as if it is a mechanical heron, very effective.

Thanks Gwyn, David, Andy, Raza and Nigel for your comments. The most difficult shot was the Bishop. Lighting inside Durham Cathedral was difficult and mixed - natural light through the Rose Window and strip lighting on the Bishop's face so I had to balance the colour in PS. I couldn't use flash or a tripod in the middle of a service, so ISO was 6,400 but I was pleased the way it turned out.

Very nice David... lovely observational set... I particularly like the December heron... one of those shots that make you look twice... looks like you’ve had a gd year...

Great set as always David, your images are always so acutely observed and technically excellent. In this set, the Lowry Centre image has to be my favourite.
