Peter this is gorgeous.. i know this cathedral very well and you have done it proud. lovely colours and good control of the light too. i notice you craftily hid windows behind pillars etc, very wise.. the view is to die for.. love the sunburst off to the left..
hope you have a good time in Lincoln and that MiL has a grand day.. it will be a slight change of scenery from Brighouse/Bradford too..

@cottiac Had me worried by your question Cottia, its a permanent fixture and has been there as long as I can remember did a quick check
The organ is one of the finest examples of the work of "Father" Henry Willis, dating from 1898. It was Willis' last cathedral organ before his death in 1901. It has undergone two restorations, in 1960 and 1998, hope this helps:)

@pcoulson It sure does 😁 I just got a bit confused when reading the narrative and it made me chuckle! Great shot by the way!

@jorlam Thank you for your wonderful comments, yes you spotted I avoided the inclusion of light flooding into the shot as I tried to get as much detail in the very dark spaces using an exposure of 30 seconds biggest challenge was people walking into the frame, had a great time thank you:)

I was just beginning to think 'Wow! Here's a man that can really pull strings to get something as grand as that on order for a few days for his MIL's special day!' :-)

It is a beautiful Cathedral Peter, you always capture such fascinating structures. I would have spent hours in there taking shots of everything. :)
