Travels with the Sigma Merrill – York

How it was known to the Brigantes is long forgotten. Hadrian held court in Eboracum after the modern city was founded by Romans in 71 AD. King Edwin of Northumbria would have called it Eoforwic, the chief city of his kingdom. Eric Blookaxe and the Viking remnants would have looked back on Yorvik, as he was ousted by King Edred.

Today it is know as York, and even on a dull day it’s a perfect place to take the Sigma Merrill. 2000 years of history have got to be good for something!

Anything 2000 years old isn’t going to move much, and the Sigma Merrill is great at capturing the detail of anything that moves slowly!

… but it’s the magic, detail and unique look of the fountain, that I was stunned by.

Shooting Notes

All shots taken using a tripod (the Merrill is mated to a tripod), at ISO100, and at a variety of apertures and shutter speeds.
