Image taken a week ago at Dore Abbey near Hereford.The Abbey was built by French Cistern Monks and dates back to the 11th Century and this stairs leads up to the Musicians Gallery which was added/built in 1710 and is at the rear of the main hall.A wonderful historical building and is in use still today with concerts and events throughout the year.
Image of 6 shots combined in Photomatix.
Large is best for the details and thank you for looking.

This is a great composition Tom - simple yet very effective. Details are fabulous as are the textures and a real warmness to the shot which acts in contrast to the austere subject.

Great work

Wonderful golden tones in the wood Tom a fine observation. I always want to see what the wee rope is barring me from seeing, human nature I suppose.
