Clifford's Tower

On a recent, brief trip to York, I was “granted” some photography time. I hadn’t got any spectacular images but on the walk back to the bus station this tower caught my eye: perched on a simple mound, floodlit and against the starry moonlit sky. Just enough time for one exposure before the bus left. Thanks for looking.

    Great shot of Clifford's Tower, much more original/imaginative than most I have seen of this York landmark.
