On the way back to Adelaide from a long weekend spent in the Barossa Valley, we noticed the looming structure of St Peter’s Anglican Cathedral as we approached Adelaide city from the north.
We pulled over and decided to go inside.
We were warmly greeted by one of the custodial staff, who gave us some information about the cathedral and encouraged us to explore. A short time later I asked her if photography was permitted, and to my delight she said yes and encouraged me to take some photos.
I dashed out to the car, fetched my rig, and then proceeded to spend the next 40 minutes photographing the interior of this beautiful cathedral. During our time there, we were treated to some fantastic music from the cathedral’s large pipe organ, whose powerful pipes boomed music throughout the cathedral as the organist played.
For some time, I have been wanting to shoot a series of interior architectural images of cathedrals, and unfortunately, some do not permit photography, or are otherwise not open all the time.
This unexpected opportunity turned out to be a real treasure, as I walked away with some pleasing images.
Here are three images I’ve published from the series thus far.
I hope you enjoy them.
