Durham Cathedral

The weather in Durham has been pretty good recently. I took the above photo last week on a short break from revision (one of many!). Whilst it’s a fairly stereotypical shot of the Cathedral I quite like the composition with the tree leaves silhouetted in the foreground. I’ve desaturated the shot from the colour original and used a ‘soft glow’ filter to make the whole thing stand out more – you can see this better on the higher-res version.

At 11 am tomorrow the exam nightmare will be over and I’ll be free forever from formal education (in theory at least!) so a small moment to mark in the history books! Expect more soon, very soon…
