Good morning to you one and all,
Well my last upload didn't prove to be all that popular, but, as promised, today I return to the body of the cathedral. I am uploading 4 versions as I really cannot decide which I like the best.
V1 & V2 have the crucifix and high alter as the focus of attention, with the font in the foreground. The font was recently moved to it's current, theoligically correct, position just inside the west door. (Theologically correct as one enters the church of Christ through baptism).
For V3 & V4 I raised the camera angle to put more emphasis on the magnificent painted wood ceiling. This ceiling is the only one surviving in Britain, is the largest painted wooden ceiling in Europe and, although it has been repainted a couple of times, the colour scheme is the same as it was when first put up in between 1230 and 1250. Unbelieveably it was nearly lost when vandals lit a fire beneath a stack of chairs at closing time.
V1 and V3 reflect the actual lighting levels and V2 and V4 arguably reveal more detail.
I look forward to reading your comments and thank you for taking the time to look.
