Wharram Percy deserted medieval village
Text from English Heritage http://bit.ly/1gRekE1:
The most famous and intensively studied of Britain's 3,000 or so deserted medieval villages, Wharram Percy occupies a remote but attractive site in a beautiful Wolds valley. Above the substantial ruins of the church and a recreated fishpond, the outlines of many lost houses are traceable on a grassy plateau. First settled in prehistoric times, Wharram flourished as a village between the 12th and 14th centuries, before final abandonment in about 1500.
Was quite drizzly and overcast our whole weekend in the North. I hunted the sun whenever I could, but it was a very elusive target this go around. We made it up to Hadrian's Wall but I'm not happy with any of my photos - it was spectacular to be there and visit it, but desperately terrible for taking photos.
I admit I could have gone the lazy route and just over processed and HDR'd my photos since the sun wasn't playing nice - but I just cannot bring myself to slather it on. It looks terrible to me and particularly because I generally photograph ancient monuments, it would be even worse.
