Whenever I wander through an old church I always look up, as ceilings, especially of the vaulted variety, are usually striking with their lines, angles, curves, materials and decorations.  Ideal for a wide angle lens.  The cathedral at Truro in Cornwall is relatively young for this part of the world (late Victorian).  The architect, John Loughborough Pearson, died in 1897 just before it was completed.  His son, Frank, took over the practice and designed and built St. Matthew’s in Auckland as a smaller version of this one.

  1. I keep coming back to this image, Nigel. At first glance I thought you had done a “flip and join” four times to create this perfection! But of course it is a wonderful real ceiling. It is amazing what was built in previous centuries without the modern technology and machinery currently available. AND it has lasted. You must have really enjoyed visiting all those old English churches and castles. Great shot and choice of framing

  2. Nigel, I love the symmetry here and somehow you have lightened the square at the top to give great depth. Love the colour and the detail extraction so we see every brick. fantastic design in your image to compliment the design on the cathedral. I find this image hard to walk away from as I see so much in it.
