English translation of title – Our Cuthbert.
Local lad Admiral Cuthbert 'Cuddy' Collingwood looking out over the mouth of the River Tyne, as viewed from Tynemouth Priory.
As every self-respecting Geordie knows, Collingwood was the man who actually defeated the French at the Battle of Trafalgar – he took command after Nelson was shot.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

He does look out over the countryside from a great vantage point, a nice strong mono Moira. - gary

I knew that Collie took over from Nelson Moira.
I never learned it at school though.
Bill mentioned it on a previous upload a couple of weeks ago.
Proof that you are never too old to learn !!

... and I thought he was one of the heroes of the 2006/07 Ashes series in Australia!! Grin

Also found out that 'Collingwood' means 'wood of disputed ownership'.

Like the gritty and contrasty presentation, Moira, and the left placement of the statue in the square format is spot on. If I come back to an image more than once it's got to be worth an award.

My favourite of the three graveyard shots. The limited depth of field works very well as does the composition.

Wow, thanks Dave for the GEA, and thanks to everyone for your comments and votes this morning.
This was taken looking south from the castle promontory, across to the other side of the river mouth; unlike the last couple of days' uploads which looked east. Hence the different light on the gravestones.

Looking South... I wonder if he could see the Monkey Hangers from there ?
Great processing, Moira, and I concur with Linda... the best of the three.

John has started to use my heavy Olympus with the 12-60 zoom lens - it's not a long lens like the one you are using. But he is so taken with it because he can stand in one spot and get different compositions Smile
I see in the progression of these that you have moved back further and further. Will there be another even wider view?
I don't know that I have a favorite yet. My first strange thought when I saw this was "the dead waking over the living below" - don't know where that came from - thoughts just sometimes pop into one's head.

I knew his statue would come in useful for somebody one day.Spot on Moira. I wonder if he was named after Collingwood Terrace in Haltwhistle.

I like the gritty textures here. Do you know Jean Anglade? His novel "Les Mains au dos" springs to mind seeing your cemetery impressions.
