Blue Skies

Blue Skies

The 'Big Freeze', as one of our newspapers billed it, is continuing. Now, it's certainly
not a Big Freeze as is being experienced by people living in parts of Europe and
America. But temperatures are cold for this time of year and
but we are still getting heavy frosts at night resulting in crisp clear
days. I don't mind - I like the bright sunny days.
This is a view of St Patrick's Cathedral from The Ramparts, snapped
on my way home at lunchtime.

I like the horizontal and vertical line arrangements. And the skies certainly live up to the title.

I LOVE the shadow of the lamp on the wall! Great to have the church in the background too. V

There's a lot going on here that makes it all the more interesting, the bridge leading to the ivy-clad doorway and the restraining rods placed in the building's wall sometime to stop it collapsing. V

So well composed and shot from such an interesting angle. A beautiful image on a beautiful day!

Great work, I love these alternative views, the ones the tourists don't see.

What a fantastic view, with that brilliant blue sky and that magnificent cathedral. If only those walls could talk! There must be so much history there. ~V~

Very nice image - I can feel that Spring is not too far behind from looking at it!

A beautiful, crisp shot, like your day. I wonder what it is like to live with great architecture....V

Definite spring feel & no doubt gearing up for St Patricks Day!

Looks like a fresh (early) spring day, I like the way you have arranged this and the stunning colours!

Lovely shot - I really like that shadow of a street lamp - it sort of fits but it doesn't....if you get my meaning!!
