Shrewsbury in soft light

Shrewsbury, founded ca.800 AD, is an English historic market town with its centre having a largely unaltered medieval street plan. The town features over 600 historic listed buildings, including several examples of timber framing from the 15th and 16th centuries. In some respects Shrewsbury is a photographer's dream! Apart from the wealth of historic buildings, there are many ‘shuts’ or small inter-connecting passage-ways between the streets, and the beautiful river Severn majestically sweeps under stone bridges. For me, it is in the evening that the town really comes alive. The lights and lanterns transport you back across the centuries to experience a dusky medieval atmosphere!

Most of these photographs were shot under low light conditions with long shutter speeds, taken over many nights. I hope you enjoy them.
