Fountains of Light

This time the title refers to Fountains Abbey, a world heritage site in Yorkshire in the UK. The 12th century abbey ruins are lit by coloured lights for Christmas and the opportunity to take photographs is irresistible.

Here are some of the pictures that caught my eye, I hope you like them.

If you’ve not been, I can recommend this place.  It has a tranquil beauty that is enhanced at night.  Here is another view of the same place.  I’m deliberately using the rule of 3 in this picture.

Let me know what you think, I’d be fascinated by your comments.
