A Window On Time (Helmsley Castle) by 

This was taken during an October tour of North Yorkshire Abbeys and Castles (although it never actually started out that way), staying each night in different Youth Hostels, one of which nearly caught fire due to someone’s over zealous use of a toaster.. This room was very emotive in the bright October light, although the capture has never looked right in colour. This makes a fab high impact canvas.

ps…must have been a good tour…as I married the lady I went with soon afterwards…..:)
