An afternoon out

We went for a walk around Fountains Abbey yesterday afternoon and the Abbey itself was less crowded than usual. As it was a family outing I didn’t have a tripod, but that gave me the unexpected opportunity to take some photos in dark places handheld.The first picture is one of 3 or 4 frames that I took, and I was pleased when the flock of gulls flew by at an opportune moment.

If you want to see the pictures larger then clink to be taken to their individual page.

This view in the cloisters was very dark and there is very little left in the window, but the atmosphere is nicely preserved.

At the other side of the cloister a bare cross stands in front of the window
