Hildesheim, Cathedral (lead & V1-V5)

By EveLine1  
Hi to all my photo friends out there! Here are some more images from the cathedral in Hildesheim, rebuilt after WWII but a World Heritage Site nonetheless. One thing that did survive the bombs was the wild dog rose. It was burnt down to the roots (that weren't damaged) but survived.
It has been documented for 700 years and is believed to be the oldest rose plant in the world. I would love to see the 10 meter high bush full of blossoms in summer.. It must be spectacular.

Thank you for your kind comments and votes for my last post. A special thanks to Glenn for his kind award!

Best wishes,
Viola

Fascinating set Viola. It's interesting to compare the almost stark simplicity of this cathedral with Edwin's (edcat) photos of the churches in Malta with their extravagant colours and decoration.

Well, the style is different. This cathedral was destroyed almost completely in the second WW. It was rebuilt in it's original romanesque style and the later changes to the interior (executed especially in baroque times) was not restored. So the cathedral now actually looks more like it woukd have looked in the beginning minus the frescoes (probably in the early gothic style) that would have adorned the walls. I don't like baroque very much as is mostly is too rich and as my mother used to put it, 'like a wedding cake'. So this is simple but it has some very remarkable ornaments. Apart from my personal taste, baroque churches can be beautiful and certainly are lovely to photograph..
Thanks for your comment and best wishes, Viola

A beautiful set Viola.
Simplicity is something that always appeals to me but it can be so difficult to get it right as there is no hiding place.
