Good Morning everyone, I had a brief trip out a couple of nights ago to catch what was looking like a potentially good night for a sunset. The sun was beaming and clouds were few, so i thought i might try somewhere that i have'nt been to before. I headed of some 16 miles down the road to Ludworth to photograph what i hoped was a sunset between and around the Tower.
Ludworth is a small pit village in County Durham, England situated between Durham and Peterlee. It consists of just over 350 houses in three main housing estates.
Ludworth Tower was originally a medieval manor house, founded by the de Ludworth family. In 1422, Thomas Holden added a rectangular pele tower, when he was granted licence to crenellate his manorial complex, by Cardinal Langley. The only surviving remains are the barrel-vaulted basement, the three storey west wall and fragments of a first floor spiral stair in the south wall.
As you can see via the image the suspected sunset just did'nt materialise at all and i got was the best of what was available on the night. I like the tower and what potential it has for a great image on a succesful sunset evening, so i think this will be a place i shall definately keep returning to until i get THAT SHOT...
Thanks for taking the time to read my recent blog entry and i hope you enjoy the image as much as i had taken it. Until till my next blog, take care and keep watching for the next update.
