Britain from A to Z - D

For the letter D in our A to Z of Britain, we travel from the north of Scotland, through the Midlands ending up on the Dorset coast with images of landscapes, flowers and churches.

We begin on the east coast of Scotland with an interior view of Dornoch Cathedral.
Dornoch Cathedral
The south transept stained glass windows in Dornoch Cathedral, Sutherland, Scotland. It was here that Madonna's and Guy Ritchie's son was baptised on 21st December 2000, the day before they were married in nearby Skibo Castle.

Next we have another church interior, this time in the town of Warwick.
Deans Chapel
The small Dean's Chapel in St Mary's Church, Warwick. This small chapel has fancifully painted Gothic vaulting painted white, with blue between the vaulting ribs. Squints look through the wall of the Dean's Chapel into the much larger and grandiose Beauchamp Chapel.

We now move away from architecture to nature with a macro of a dandelion:

Finally off to the south coast with an image of Durdle Door in Dorset.
Durdle Door
Durdle Door is one of the most photographed landmarks along the Jurassic Coast. This rock arch in the sea was formed as a result of the softer rocks being eroded away behind the hard limestones, allowing the sea to punch through them. The name Durdle is derived from an Old English word thirl meaning bore or drill. Eventually the arch will collapse to leave a sea stack such as those that can be seen at Ladram Bay in East Devon.

As usual, my work is available to purchase as original  Wall Art, in a variety of formats from stretched canvas or framed prints, metal or acrylic prints,or simply as standard prints for you to mount in your favourite picture frame. They are also available as greeting cards or printed onto iPhone or Galaxy phone cases, throw pillows or duvet covers or tote bags or shower curtains. Simply click on the  image and you will be taken to my gallery where you will find full details.
