When you visit Durham City in North East England, plan a visit Crookhall and Gardens. (Twitter: @CrookHall).

The gardens are full of history with little secluded areas, beautiful flowers and ornamental sculptures and statues.

You can also visit the The Medieval Hall which is the oldest part of Crook Hall.

Here are a few pictures I have taken over the years. You can also view the photos in the Crook Hall Flickr Album via this link: www.flickr.com/photos/dominart/albums/72157621877348020

Peterlee Skies Time-lapse

I decided to spend Saturday afternoon creating some time-lapse photos.

The Nikon Coolpix P900 has a few time-lapse modes that differ mainly in the recording time and interval.  The output is always 10 seconds:

  1. City (about 5 minutes real time; 300 or so pictures)
  2. Landscape (25 minutes)
  3. Sunset (50 minutes)
  4. Night Sky (150 minutes)
  5. Star Trails (150 minutes)

Here are the videos I had taken today:
