    I read a couple of descriptions of this edifice - it is a peculiarly English construction, it seems to me. Americans would build something like this in Las Vegas or Wisconsin Dells amusement park, but not in a spot where it is expected to be taken seriously. Your image makes it look much more like a toy than like a grandiose tribute to a man's inflated sense of his own worth.

    I am sorry if I have this all wrong. I don't mean to say that Americans do not make silly and self righteous monuments. I just think that this one tastes English to me.

    I'm sure you are right. I don't suppose there were many people around in 1844 willing to tell tell Charles William Vane, 3rd Marquess of Londonderry that this was a bit over the top - he did own large chunks of County Durham and the coal beneath it.

    Cool image! I like the way the building's black. It'd be nice to see one taken a bit closer.

    thanks, it was with an R72 filter. This needed much more exposure than the 5 stops compensation suggested in most places. This was taken at a little over 10 stops more than the meter suggested without the filter - probably some reciprocity failure here as well. Another exposure at +8 stops (2 min) was just about printable. +6 stops (30s) was well underexposed.

    That's very good John. Keep meaning to go up there myself sometime. Just never get around to it.
