King’s College – Cambridge UK

King's College

King’s College

I flew into the Cambridge Airport late this afternoon and only had a couple hours of light. It’s been several years since I’d been here and at that time I was not taking photographs. Plus the weather was very fowl.

We’re staying at the Double Tree Hotel right on the river and as I was leaving the hotel to take some photos I asked the receptionist if there was one photo I should take what should it be?

She thought for a moment and while in thought I asked her what photograph would remind you of your city? She then immediately said the view of the rear King’s College from across the river.

Perfect. As I looked at the map and the sun was in a perfect position as it was only an hour or so before sunset and the rear of King’s College faces directly west.

I had to crop a little bit to get the look I wanted I hope I’ve done this great piece of architecture justice!

    • Thanks James. Wish I had more time to see the town. I’m already back here in the USA.
