Canterbury Cathedral - The Nave

Canterbury Cathedral – The Nave

Looking West down the Nave (an interesting fact is that most Cathedrals “point” from West to East) with a wide angle lens you can see the sublime 600 year old structure of Canterbury Cathedral.

It was designed by Henry Yevele and is 26.5m (82ft) high (a photograph looking up will follow). Much of the window at the end of the Nave dates from the 13th century.


Seven-bracket HDR photograph (worried about the bright lights at the top I was shooting into) taken using the built-in function on the Canon 6D. No cropping, but considered fixing the perspective (then didn’t), processed in Photomatix Pro and Adobe Photoshop CS6 – with just a smattering of “blue dawn” to cool it down and tone enhancer to bring out the brick work.

I may revisit this photograph in due course 😉
