photoblog image St.Davids Cathedral #2

St.Davids Cathedral #2

My follow up to yesterdays picture of this lovely building is another "standard" view taken of the whole building from above the East end.

It is a plain and simple, but very attractive building, both inside and out, and does not have the grander designs of some of our other cathedrals.  More details can be found at http://www.stdavidscathedral.org.uk/index.php?id=760 

I may post some shots taken inside during the coming weeks.  In the meantime have a good weekend, back on Monday.

I like this shot as much as yesterday's Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, I thought it waould make a change to do a B&W presentation, it helps to age it a bit.

It's a lovely location, Brian, as you've found for your self. The high vantage point makes for a different view than you would get for other cathedrals.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, from my viewpoint I stiil had a job to get it all in with a 28mm.equivalent setting on my lens.

Beautiful, Brian. It works so well in monotone and really brings out the ornate architecture. Superb
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, I was hoping people would like it in B&W.as it does show up the stonework to advantage.

Makes a good B&W. It is a charming cathedral
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I would like to go there again and have time to go round the small town as well.
This is a lovely imposing shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, I thought it looked quite bold in B&W.

A superb picture Brian. The viewpoint probably helps, but you've composed the scene perfectly, with the hills in the background in just about the right position to balance the height of the tower. Jolly good detail too, I could almost count the blocks of stone.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie, there is a handy rise nearby which helps to get an overhead style shot. I think the B&W helps with the details.
