Fiat Lux

..."Let There Be Light." I'm no stranger to the spectacular interior of York Minster Cathedral, but it just takes my breath away every time I see it. The white limestone walls appear to defy gravity, leaping skywards to the heavens in a magnificent combination of geometry and art. Such places surely transcend the status of mere buildings and could be more appropriately described as monuments to the capability of mankind.

 

I was pleased with this photo as it succeeds, in some small way, in demonstrating the sheer scale of the cathedral. The size and ornate detail of the interior is truly awe-inspiring.
