Castle Square in the Snow
The area between Lincoln cathedral and Lincoln castle is called Castle Square.
This makes the perfect vantage point for photography and to capture an image of the twin West Towers of the cathedral with some of the Bailgate area buildings in the foreground. What makes this particular photograph unique is that it was taken on a snowy evening in lockdown when very few people were out and about.
The snow on the ground reflects the light to give a unique winter feel to the image. The small aperture (f10) and 24mm prime lens used to take the photograph means that the lights on the Judges' lodgings (the building next to the iconic red telephone box) make beautiful starbursts. The black and white timber framed building with the bow window next door is now the Visitor Information Office and forms part of Leigh-Pemberton House which dates back to the 16th century. It is one of the oldest buildings in Lincoln that is still in regular use and has a stunning beamed ceiling inside visible to all visitors.
The Magna Carta pub is so-named because Lincoln has one of the original copies of Magna Carta (the great charter) signed by King John at Runnymede in 1215. Lincoln's Magna Carta can be seen in a special display in Lincoln Castle.

Each photograph is Giclée printed on Canson Baryta Fine Art Paper. This is a pure white Baryta base archival quality paper with excellent black density, contrast and reproduction of detail. The Baryta base creates whiter whites and deeper blacks whilst the silky smooth reflective coating enhances the detail and definition of the images.
