    Canterbury Cathedral....sort of

    It was peak tourist season in Canterbury. The cathedral was chocker with all nationalities. There were innumerable point and shoots, bridges and DSLRs all pointing at the towering gothic spires....guess where mine was pointing...

    Actually Canterbury is older than Gothic But I've only got your word that it is Canterbury Steve, it might be the local comp. Digressing they are not finished works at Lichfield until 2014, originally they (cathedrals) only took 60 years to build.

    I've seen pics of Canterbury elsewhere and I can't say I'm impressed with them, I don't know what it is like for real but believe they have a vault (ceiling) that is as fine as lace.

    This is good;

    Photo Dramatists license. Externally, Canterbury is nowhere near as impressive as York but the interior is pretty spectacular and the vault is beautiful. I am not sure how I missed that programme I am usually pretty good at spotting these documentaries. Many thanks for the link Steve I will watch at leisure.

    Yes I'm pretty much impressed by the amount of work that goes into a cathedral, sort of set myself a target to faithfully reproduce one, but that of course doesn't only mean accurate images, but accuracy with feeling.

    So I do something to get close to detail without losing sight of the bigness and somebody says, I've seen that before!
