Durham Cathedral Nave

Here is a photograph showing the Nave of Durham Cathedral in the North East of England. The Cathedral was built in the 11th Century as a place of worship, specifically to house the shrine of the North's best-loved saint, Cuthbert. As well as containing the relics of St. Cuthbert the Cathedral is also home to the remains of the Venerable Bede.


It is widely regarded as one of the finest buildings in Britain and rightfully gained its status as a World Heritage Site 23 years ago.

    Great HDR. Vibrant but not too over-cooked. Tastefully done.

    Beautiful shot, and you are so lucky to have it - knowing the rules about photography in there. The detail and soft lighting is excellent.
    Thank you for posting it in the Photo Technique Symmetry Challenge.

    @Mrs Logic: I know I am lucky to have got this, knew I wanted this shot so waited until I had spent a good couple of hours wandering the Cathedral, climbing the tower etc...

    I did get collared with my camera round my neck on the way out of the door mind! But I justify it to myself by the generous contribution that I (didn't have to) put into the donations box. So my conscience is clear on this one. Interestingly the employee I was speaking to said that she thinks the rule on photography is silly and as long as people aren't using flash/disturbing the services then she can't see the problem!
