Ornate

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge (from a long time ago, trying to get back into the swing of things so picking up a few of the previous challenges):

Anyone who has read my previous posts will have seen that one of the things I have spent some time photographing is Peterborough Cathedral. I also tend to try and get a few of any other cathedrals that I go to which at the moment is limited to three others – Ely, Lincoln, and Bristol (I have been to others, but not since having been bitten by the photography bug).

 

By the nature of what these buildings are for, they are built to impress and so the structures will be embellished with some ornate carvings and the structural elements will also be done in such a way that whilst individually they would look quite plain and do their job, when viewed together as a whole you get an intricate styling that can’t help but impress.

 

Here are a few shots of two Cathedrals, Peterborough first:
