By far the most famous picture of Durham is of the medieval Cathedral enthroned on its mound above the Old Fulling Mill, the waters of the River Wear rippling over the diagonal weir forming the perfect lead-in to the shot.
This is where that famous view is taken from, and therefore the view that most people fail to notice. I tried to focus on the tripod holes, somewhere on the triangle of grass on the far right, but couldn't quite spot them on an overcast Sunday afternoon.

Certainly one of your more ''scenic'' uploads Bill.
Good one.
And I actually saw one tog trying to set his tripod up in the
middle of the High Street among the thronging crowd of the Fringe.
He ended up using it as a ''monopod'' instead !!

Well worth the overnight wait to see this Bill, my award for a beautifully composed and presented image, lovely colour and my favourite reflection. Just love this one my friend, I'd have this on my wall for sure.

Damn those elusive tripod holes. Methinks they're sneakily plugged up with tiny divots.

Utterly beautiful scene, Bill, and good job photographing the "other side".

That's funny because I saw the same man try to get his tripod up amongst the thonging crowd. Actually it could have been his monopod

Perfect in all respects, Bill. As Dougie says, it would be a candidate for my wall as well.

And unlike your more 'normal' style, beautifully in focus from front to rearGrin
