POTD: Fountains Abbey

POTD: Fountains AbbeyFountains Abbey
Aldfield, England
2015

To a very close approximation, this is the same scene I photographed when we first visited Fountains Abbey some 12-15 years ago, so it’s not really a new image for me. Even though I like it a lot, you might wonder why I would go to all the trouble to try and recreate a photo I’ve already taken. Well, 12-15 years ago was eons in digital camera years so the technical quality of the photos I took then don’t match what I can produce now. Because of the quality issue, I can’t enlarge that earlier photo much bigger than 8″x12″ before the detail suffers too much. Yet, I like it enough to want to print a bigger version. Now I can.
