Lancaster Castle and The Priory Church

Lancaster Castle and The Priory Church are fine sights. This photo was taken this morning (22nd October) and as you can see the sun was shining brightly. The sunlight is hitting both buildings and casting shadows on the buildings which adds further interest. We know that sunlight can bleach detail as seen in the blog entry for the 12th October but in this case the exposure shows detail.

The Priory has looked like this for five or six hundred years. For roughly the same amount of time the castle has also looked like this. Both buildings are much older than this but both have been altered. However there is a strong sense of history looking at this photo. Some other buildings are visible but these too are mostly the older part of Lancaster. The trees are the modern addition but this too gives the photo a strong sense of history.

Happy snapping
