10th February 2010

Took a drive up to the Howardian Hills in my lunch hour. There had been a brief flurry of snow earlier in the morning, and a little was still lying.

The Carlisle Memorial Column is a 19th century monument built to the memory of the 7th Earl of Carlisle, paid for by public subscription. To give some idea of scale, the central column, which is hollow inside, is over seven feet in diameter, and 250 feet tall.

  3. I like this one. I like the light behind the monument, in particular.
