Royal Crescent, Bath. 3 of 3

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 22 January 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

A short series on one of the most iconic streets in the UK.
Royal Crescent is a street of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent in the city of Bath. It was designed by the architect John Wood the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774, and is among the greatest examples of Georgian architecture in Britain.

Canon EOS 500D 1/100 second F/10.0 ISO 100 22 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
