Travel Photo: Salisbury Cathedral

The historic Salisbury Cathedral was built over a span of 38 years (quite a short period for church building!) in the mid-13th century. This Gothic cathedral is one of the most beautiful in the UK and a must-see for lovers of medieval architecture.

Salisbury Cathedral has the tallest church spire in all of the United Kingdom at 123 m/404 ft, the oldest working tower clock and four original surviving copies of the Magna Carta, which are of the best quality.

If you happen to visit Stonehenge, Salisbury is just about 8 miles away. Taking a walk through the town, you get great views of the cathedral when walking along the Avon River. You may recognize some of the scenes in John Constables paintings of the cathedral.

In recent weeks I’ve revisited some of the old photos taken with a simple point and shoot camera, and have been playing around with post-processing techniques. This is the outcome of my work on this photo. I wanted to create a dark mood, with a vintage feel.
