July 2017 - Durham City - Robin Taylor Photography

The last time I visited Durham was Autumn 2016, definitely time for another trip. The cathedral has been under renovation for some time and the 'bandage` from one of the twin towers at the western end of the structure had at last gone, only to move across to the eastern tower. Whilst not the most photogenic addition I'm sure it'll be worth it in the end and being nearly 900 years means a little TLC can't really be begrudged for a few pictures ! Living so near to Durham, I'd always admired the City for its views but I dont think until my love of photography kicked in, that I realised just how special a place it is. Here are a selection of images taken from the walk around the base of the Cathedral on the banks of the River Wear. As ever, thanks for looking at my site and if you would like a print of my work, or a framed picture please get in touch at robinta1967@gmail.com Cheers, Robin Taylor
