Ceiling and Organ, Almudena Cathedral, Madrid, Spain

Though the interior of the Almudena Cathedral is distinctly modern, there are some elements, such as the detailed ceiling panels, that remind me of the intricately assembled wooden ceilings in parts of the Alhambra.Β  (In contrast, the outside of the Cathedral is thoroughly traditional.)

  1. So excited to be here, to have found you. Most of my photography is dull and ordinary but every once in a while, when I get off the farm and out of the pig sty, I will capture something wonderful.

    You are capturing wonderful all the time.

    I especially loved the Ireland pics. I have been there many times and taken pics of the Cliffs many times but never have I seen one with such calm waters as you captured. The faeries were watching over you that day were they not?

    • Thanks Donna. The first day we went to the cliffs, the weather was atrocious – driving wind and rain, and the spray from the waves about reached the cliff-tops! But luckily I had a chance to go back after dinner another day, and then the faeries where on the job and I was able to take those pictures πŸ™‚

  2. Brilliant colours and such a captivating ceiling. I wonder if this was an attempt to direct everyone’s eyes to the heavens??

  3. stunningly beautiful, I love the color and detail of the image – I have been working full time,and trying to keep up with my photography projects, all of it has left me little time to enjoy the beauty of others – it is inspiring to see the work you do, thanks for sharing it with us!

    • I know the feeling – one the reasons this is a travel photography blog is because it’s the only time I get to pick up my camera! I’m glad my pictures inspire you, and I hope you find the time to keep up with your photography.
