High Altar of Ely Cathedral

This is the last image from my series of images depicting the ornate Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire, England.

Featured in this image is the high altar.

We spent a wet, gloomy afternoon inside the cathedral, where the very elaborate architecture was a pleasure both to view with one’s own eyes, as well as photograph.

I hope readers have enjoyed my photographic study of Ely Cathedral.

It is a cathedral well worth visiting.

Altar of the Church of the Loaves and Fishes

This image was the first of only two I captured at the Church of the Loaves and Fishes.

The Church of the Loaves and Fishes is located at Tabgha, on the north-western shore of the Sea of Galilee.

It is in this area where Jesus performed the miraculous feeding of 5,000 people with a bounty of loaves and fishes.

Underneath the altar is located the stone on which the miraculous meal is believed to have been laid.

St Peter’s Anglican Cathedral, Adelaide

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 have published from the series thus far.

I hope you enjoy them.
