Superb.
I really like this...i love to see great images of Penshaw Monument.
If you were to go up the steps, and down the other side, you will come to Old Penshaw Village. My parents were married in the church there, and i was born just a few streets down from there.
When i worked away, i knew i was home when i could see the Monument.
Thanks for this one.

I like that, I've tried many times to get a shot of Penshaw Monument I was happy with, but have never really succeeded.

Great dramatic work, David.

Looks like it would make a great cover for a mystery/thriller novel ?

Best regards

Very good David, strong composition and strong contrasty processing which really suits the image.

Never seen that! Must look out for it the next time I'm in the north-east! Love all the angles!
