Urban landscapes: the ancient cathedral


During our 2017 European cruise ship vacation, I had most of a day to myself to roam through downtown Dublin and make pictures. Finding the city’s cathedrals was at the top of my list and one look at this photo tells you why.
I was truly blessed to be permitted to use my tripod, since a six-second exposure was required to capture this dimly lit scene. Here’s the picture in colour: https://bit.ly/IrishCathedral
According to Wikipedia, the basis of the present St. Patrick’s Cathedral was built between 1191 and 1270, though little now remains of the earliest work beyond the baptistry. It was a Roman Catholic church until about 1537, when the English Reformation (under King Henry VIII) caused it to become Anglican.
