Derry City, Northern Ireland

There is a green hill far away

I may have uploaded a similar scene before, but bear with me. I’m really enjoying this hdr stuff. The was taken from the Walls of Derry. A late afternoon shot.
St Eugene’s is one of our two cathedral’s. This is the Catholic cathedral, built in the late 19th century. The Church of Ireland (Anglican) cathedral St Columb’s is 17th century. Every year there is a Two Cathedrals Festival with lot’s of fine music and a candlelit procession between the two. In the distance are the Donegal hills.
The hymn was written by Mrs Cecil Frances Alexander, while her husband was an Anglican Bishop of Londonderry in the 19th century.

    What a beautiful view this is….were you on top of a building or a hill to get this? It is really beautiful…great capture:)

  • Thank you for your lovely comment, Romo. I was on the Walls of Derry. We are a walled city, the walls are 17th century and very historic. They overlook the city. A great vantage point for photo taking. Thanks for the favourite, my friend. Agnes xx
