Burgos Cathedral AngleI really like cathedrals. They are a testament to what humans can do with good planning, hard work, creativity, patience, and good funding. I am left in awe by the meticulous detail of carving stone after stone after stone with the exact same shape, so that, when stacked together, they form perfect beautiful lines from floor to canopied ceiling. So I have a pillar fetish, so what?

Below are some photos I took during our recent visit to the Burgos Cathedral that didn’t quite fit in with the main post.

I also dig vanishing point photography.

If I’d had a tripod, I could have done more depth of field control. Oh well.

    When I go to the Burgos’ cathedral and see upwards, especially under the “cimborrio”, I feel vertigo, so high it is. It’s the sensation that you get when look to the bottom of some very deep well, although here the “bottom” (which is the cupola) is very luminous… and very wide. Not to speak about the artistic stained glass windows or the sculpted stones…

    I like your shoots, good job.
