Inside Fountains Abbey

The largest indoor area of the Abbey is called The Monk’s cellarium and it was where the food was stored. Presented with this low light environment and not having a tripod with me was a challenge. My solution was to put my camera on the floor. This meant I was able to capture a much longer exposure and get the details in the darker areas of the ceiling. Taking off my jacket, I was able to put this under the camera to lift up the front of the lens and adjust the angle to frame this photograph properly.
