York Minster and Whitby Abbey
Lens: Sigma 10-20 Camera: Kx Photo Location: Yorkshire, UK ISO: 50 
Posted By: bychan, 05-22-2011, 11:52 AM

During a short stay in Yorkshire recently, we visited York Minster and the ruins of Whitby Abbey. Luckily in early May there weren't many people visiting the Abbey, although the Minster was very busy (tourists ).

Here are some images taken at both venues, 1-4 York Minster, 5-8 Whitby Abbey.
All with the Sigma 10-20 (except #3 - Sigma 18-50).









I didn't think at the time that these would be my last set with the Kx (just bought a K5).
