photoblog image Salisbury Cathedral Interior

Salisbury Cathedral Interior

The second of my two photographs from this lovely building was taken from behind the high altar.

You can see the candelabra and the cross on the altar itself behind the iron grill, and the nave disapearing in the distance towards the West End of the building.

Nice amount of light for this shot Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, enough light that a hand held shot worked out o.k.
I like the angle you chose to shoot this one. Fine shot Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it was the colourful screen that really caught my eye at first.
Wonderful building Brian and your picture is lovely.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, worth a visit if you've never been that way before.
This is a glorious building Brian and your shot does it justice
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, I really would have liked more time but it was a Sunday and while services were being held visitors were not allowed, which is understandable.
This is very nice, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Chad.

Very impressive, too, Brian. Alas, I have never been in any of the cathedrals close to me (Winchester, Chichester and this one) so something I need to rectify. Do you know if they permit tripods to be used?
Brian Walbey: I think you would really enjoy visiting your local cathedrals Alan, a real photographic indulgence as far as I am concerned. Most cathedrals make a nominal charge for a permit to use a camera but some do allow tripods and others don't in which case you need a fairly high ASA and/or flash and something steady to lean against. This was taken hand-held on a compact.
Great looking building Brian, plenty of detail and a fine light as well.
Brian Walbey: Thanks les, another of our great cathedrals that are well worth a visit.
