title A ghost story...

detailsElvet bridge, Durham City, built by Bishop Pudsey (1153-95) is one of three bridges in England that has houses on them.
To the left of the image used to be prison cells beneath the arches where a gypsy piper, Jimmy Allen, was held until his demise in 1810. He held the title Piper to the Duchess of Northumbria and his passing was ill timed as three days after he was granted a reprieve! It is said that you can still hear the dulcet tones of Jimmy's pipes late at night under the arches.....visit if you dare!!!!

Thanks for viewing

Another beautiful cityscape with very interesting story.
I was tempted to reduce highlights - forgive :)

I saw this as more of a pano. For the lighting I went between the two examples above

#4 TW_Bda(Tim White): Like your example very much Tim, as it shows both: clouds' texture and better lit bottom of the picture, as Sreten did.
By the way - could you help? do you recognize the birds on my today photo? Thanks!

Nicely done, I know this bridge well, I used to live in the North East (my family still does) so know Durham, used to fish in the Wear downstream from here.
