Fountains Abbey

By YorkshireSam
I wanted to show just some of the main elements of this once grand structure while retaining a sense of its colossal scale so this composition seemed just right but when seen small the effect I wanted is lost so for those interested please use the link to see it as intended... Large Version

Many thanks to all who commented and voted on the more distant view of this location.

I think you have achieved your goal very well, Sam: very well chosen viewpoint capturing the main tower framed by the arches.
Superb detail in the stonework and vertical verticals which I approve ofWinkWink.
