You have convinced me - I have to go there and see it
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

That east end with the Lady Chapel and forest of pillars is my favourite part. Beautifully photographed, David. (Terrific light. We never go there in the summer for obvious reasons: in the winter we have it to ourselves, but the light is not so good.)
Best wishes,

Andrew

Thanks for telling me this is the Lady Chapel Andrew - I didn't know the name of this area of the cathedral. At Durham the East End behind the High Altar is called the Chapel of the Nine Altars. I've photographed this area of Wells Cathedral previously and I'm always impressed by the lovely tones in the Mendip stone -very similar to Cotswold stone.
Thanks for your encouraging comments Andrew, David and Giulio.

Not quite the Lady Chapel, David: this is glimpsed through the pillars. I think it's called an ambulatory, separating the back of the choir from the Lady Chapel.
Best wishes,

Andrew

I would have seen it for myself a few months ago but I object to paying an obligatory "donation" to see a cathedral! It's a lovely shot!

I didn't pay an entry fee at Wells but I bought a photography pass - I think it was 3, or it might have been 5. I took loads of pictures so it was worth it.
I just wish Durham Cathedral allowed visitors to take photos on an ad hoc basis, they could earn a lot of money towards the enormous maintenance costs of this 900+year old building which is visited every day by thousands of people from all over the world.
They do sometimes have special occasions when they let photographers in - I think they charge 10 per camera. DOIK will have a better idea about that, he's Durham Photographic Society's cathedral ambassador.
