Looking Up

We went to visit Peterborough Cathedral today this is one of the ceilings in this fantastic cathedral. I shot this with my 35mm Prime and it only just fitted in the frame I suppose I could have lied down but fought I might get a few strange looks :)
I love the symmetry of this shot, fave!

Echo what Stephanie has said - the symmetry is wonderful. It's like looking through a Kaleidoscope.

Fabulous! Beautiful ceiling and if this was hand held, Respect! A trick I have used in cathedrals is to set the timer for 2 seconds and just lay the camera on the floor and press the shutter button!

It always pays to look up. What a fantastic ceiling. I took a similar shot in the Queen Victoria building in Sydney of the dome ceiling. Know what you mean about needing to lie down, but same problem here in the QVB is now a shopping centre and I would have had some strange looks too if I was flat on my back taking photos, ha ha.

I love the symmetry of this shot. fav.

If I remember correctly, Peterborough cathedral has a flat painted wood ceiling as well? I was there years ago! Beautiful image, this shot.

Beautifully shot, Richard! The symmetry, the richness of coloration, the patterning, it all adds up to be a beautiful image.

But wait, you aren't immune to strange looks on poses we take on behalf of photography? :)

@onewing @jyokota Thanks both. I should probably point out I was standing next to my wife's wheel chair at the time. She had hobbled off to have a look at another area with my son so if I been lying on the floor people would probably think I'd fell out the chair.. :) Might have caused a stir when I got up and walked off!

@rjb71 -- oh, you are so right! You would have caused a panic scene!
