One major architectural feature of Lincoln Cathedral are the spectacular vaults. The varying vaults within the cathedral are said to be both original and experimental. All I could think of while photographing it was "who messed up there..." - it apparently was intentional but it really did look like a mistake!

The Abbey of St Mary is a ruined Benedictine abbey in York, and was once the richest abbey in England. It was the first place I photographed when we first arrived in York - in my case, over 31 years since the last time I was in the city.

As twilight set in, I walked around the Minster, and made some mixed lighting photographs of the ancient building, loving the beauty the two light sources provided.
