Ely Cathedral in the snow

Cathedral Snow

This morning the snow fell in Ely all morning, quite unusual in this part of the country. The snowflakes have started to dissolve the façade of the building, the close up shots reminds me of Monet’s Rouen Catherdral.

Ely Cathedral in 4 sections

Ely Cathedral

This photograph consists of 4 high resolution digital files; they have been combined to create a highly detailed recording of the Gothic cathedral of Ely. This image can be printed to poster scale without loss of resolution. The sky has been removed to create a strong graphic quality and to focus attention on the rich shapes and elaborate structure of the façade.

The Octagon

You have to lie flat on your back to get this shot….or have a very fancy tripod…I chose to be flat on my back….not the most comfortable position! 🙂

The timber octagon that sits on the tower of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity at Ely is one of the greatest engineering feats of the Middle Ages. Completed in 1334, it weighs around 400 tons.
