Northern Light

Hexham Abbey, North of England

I hate the grim, dull, dark, damp conditions that usually passes for winter weather in this country. January weather is never that great for photography, but nontheless i gave it a go anyway, while i was in Hexham. The iPhone shot above is of the wonderful Hexham abbey, a gorgeous piece of old architecture that acts as a reminder of the North's dark and turbulent past. It is like travelling back in time when you enter the abbey. A fabulous experience.

Hexham itself is a great little town, which like it's abbey, has a rich heritage. An impressive 14th century keep acts as a huge landmark for visitors to view as they wander around the farmers market. I'll definitely be heading back there during the summer to document the charismatic town... when the light is better.
