Ornate Street Lamp York

Following Museum Street south it becomes Station Road and crosses over the River Ouse at Lendal Bridge. This is one of the very ornate street lamps on Lendal Bridge. The sun was in the perfect place but was very strong and caused a camera mishap. The focus point was on the very reflective gold part of the lamp in the middle of the frame. As this was massively bright (reflecting the sunlight directly down my lens) it tricked the camera into thinking the whole scene was like this. Looking at the un-edited image out of the camera the sky is near enough black. It was a very crowded pavement on a busy road, so I couldn’t stop for a second attempt. Fortunately I was able to recover the detail in the sky.
