In the Crypt of Rochester Cathedral

 

Spent some time in Rochester and Visited the Cathedral. We walked down in to the crypt and I took this image of one of the windows, once again finding the light and shadow so intriguing.

About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

  3. The pale shapes above spark the imagination – two extending claws, teeth, a billowing shroud? Good shot.

    What a cryptic crypt . . . I always believed them to be below ground.

    wow, very cool image. and totally love the quote about mirrors and windows. when you said Rochester I thought of this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbrF2X6_xbo (but that is the USA one. But still a good song about the relationship with his father.)

    The curved surfaces look incongruently modernist in this setting. 🙂 Superb quote too, by the way!

      Thank you, Marylin. There are areas in the Cathedral where stone masons perfectly cut the stone in 608 CE. I find it incredible that they had that kind of skill.
