An English landscape. Not sure of the exact location but somewhere in Derbyshire on the southern tip of the Pennines. Small photographs don’t capture the epic size and detail of landscapes such as these, but this image has captured something of the beauty of this area of England.

Manchester Cathedral, formally the Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St Mary, St Denys and St George, in Manchester, England, is the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Manchester, seat of the Bishop of Manchester and the city’s parish church.

The main body of the cathedral is in the Perpendicular Gothic style. James Stanley (warden 1485–1506) was responsible for commissioning the late-medieval wooden furnishings, including the pulpitum, choir stalls and the nave roof supported by angels with gilded instruments. The medieval church was extensively refaced, restored and extended in the Victorian period, and again following bomb damage in the 20th century. The cathedral is one of fifteen Grade I listed buildings in Manchester.

Looks like the high life to me! Being an ordinary working-class guy, this initially looks enviable to me – but somehow, not for long. Not a lifestyle that I would wish to have all the time. Still I like the contrast between the slick boat and Ibiza old town.

Floating in the air – Photo by Rob Laynton

Photo montage. I don’t really know where these ideas come from. I think that this started as a ‘Rapunzel’ theme and evolved into this image. You may also think that there is some sort of ‘message’ here – there isn’t. I subscribe to the Sam Goldwyn maxim: If you want to send a message use the Post Office.
