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.

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.
