Yes, we enjoyed another great day’s photography in Carlisle Cathedral yesterday.
Thirteen photographers joined us for a Photography Workshop in this beautiful English Cathedral.
Above – a group of happy photographers persuaded to take a break from their photography so that I could take their picture. The rather crude paste-up of the photographer on the right was needed because this photographer nipped off for a cup of tea just before we got everyone together. We couldn't leave him off the team group, could we? Oh, don't tell me you didn't spot the paste-up and I didn't need to mention it!
After a short talk to ensure that everyone knew what to expect from the day, we were soon out in the cathedral grounds to take full advantage of the glorious light on offer.
After coffee we were inside the cathedral.

Photographers in all directions
I have never seen so many photographers disperse so quickly – they were off and photographing within seconds of walking though the cathedral door.
I do all I can to find every photographer during the day to make sure they are okay and see if they need any guidance, but everyone knows they only have to come to me and I will help sort out their technical or compositional questions.
Come back for more pictures
Once again, it was a delight to see such a great mixture of old and new friends, some of whom were coming to the Carlisle Photography Workshop for the second time. Typically, photographers tell me there was so much to see and photograph inside the cathedral that they just had to come back.
Two of the photographers had been with us in Menorca reecntly and one of the group will be joining us in Venice soon for the Photography Holiday. I'm pleased to say several others have shown a keen interest in joining us for one of our special holidays in Menorca this year.
I can certainly promise them a great time and a whole load of excellent photography.
