Durham Cathedral, Old Fulling Mill, River Wear

macuser's picture

This is one of Durham's classic photography locations situated next to the old Corn Mill, commonly known as the Pink House. Durham cathedral, the focal point of this location is a designated World Heritage Site and is regarded as one of the best examples of Norman architecture in Europe. Additionally the Old Fulling Mill now the Museum of Archaeology is located on the banks of the River Wear in the shadow of Durham Cathedral. Incidentally it's one of the most photographed museums in the UK. The building itself dates back to the 15th Century and in combination with the cathedral make the perfect backdrop for a long exposure of the River Wear.

It can be difficult to find different compositions to the classic one seen above. This can mean it's difficult to capture a unique shot, however visit in the different seasons or weather conditions and it always looks very different. Remember your tripod and ND filters to lengthen those exposures. It looks best in snow, although autumn colours also look good. It's suited more to sunrise than sunset. 

Check out a 360 degree view.
