Beverley Minster, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

In the early 8th century a monastery was founded here by John of Beverley (Bishop of York), he was a teacher and healer of high renown. After his death many pilgrims began visiting his tomb, then after he became a saint in 1037 Beverley became one of the most popular places of pilgrimage in the north of England until the reformation in the 1530s.
The structure of Beverley Minster that we see surviving today began construction in 1220 and was completed in 1425. The long period of construction shows changing fashions in architecture, the principal architectural styles to be seen are Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular.
Various restorations have taken place from the 18th century to the present day.

In the background of the photo can be seen St Mary's church, another impressive 13th-14th century church which stands near the far end (north) of the medieval town.

Salt Pond E8 lies along the southern edge of the Phase I restoration project in the Eden Landing Ecological Reserve. From looking at Google Earth photographs it appears the pond was used for salt production up to the large 2003 land purchase that marked the beginning of the modern day restoration project. I find the current day Salt Pond E8 a particularly interesting subject due to its fabulous bottom textures and myriad traces of early salt works and hunting blinds. Many of the early salt work features must date back to the 19th Century.

During this autumn photo session, Salt Pond E8 featured shallow pools of water with relatively low salinity. The center of the pond was populated by a large flock of birds gathered on higher points of the bottom. This session also included views of neighboring ponds including E8X, E6B, and E8A. As I worked the camera down toward the southern end of the levee and the Old Alameda Creek flood control channel I captured views of a large salt brine distribution system. This once sent brine across a pipeline that bridged the creek to end up at the Alvarado Salt Works site.

I am taking these documentary photographs under a Special Use Permit from the California Department of Fish & Wildlife. Kite flying is prohibited over the Eden Landing Ecological Reserve without a Special Use Permit.

Vision issues resolved, I have started taking photographs in the South Bay again. This set was taken in very low winds along the western stretch of the levee that separates former Salt Pond E9 from E14. Salt Pond E9 has been open to the tides for a decade or so.

I am taking these documentary photographs under a Special Use Permit from the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge. Kite flying is prohibited over the Eden Landing Ecological Reserve without a Special Use Permit.
