Taken at the 2013 Hull Real Ale & Cider Festival, Holy Trinity church, Kingston upon Hull.

The title of this penultimate image (and the processing) is inspired by one of the festival ales, called Merlyn a 4.9% bitter brewed by Great Orme, Glan Conwy, Colwyn Bay, Wales.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'T'Owd Man'.

Fabulous processing here Philip - the mono gives it a real timeless quality along with the gentlemen's exceptionally stupendous beard! These images have been great.
Very effective, like it !!
