I often wonder if the impressive and extravagant architecture of cathedrals is meant to distance believers from what is heavenly and saintly, almost belittling mere humans in the face of religion. But when I think of religion, the image that comes into my mind is a special place in nature that is so inspiring that it draws on all the awe that lives in me and leaves me in sympathy with the mysteries of life, not scared, not feeling smaller, why would it? Aren’t love and kindness the essence of religion?

I love your choice to really have the architecture cover 3/4 of the frame, very “prominent”. Love the pp as well.
Love, peace,freedom, compassion and kindness are the essence of life.. fear and control sadly seem to be the essence of many religions
Nice perspective – However a little too much postprocessing from my point of view.
I would be interested in a BW version.
This is beautiful and made my head spin! I love your photography!
I believe in less buildings and more action. That is how I serve God and humanity
thats amazing this perspective!
Wow! This is amazing…You’re right, Nature is the most spiritually inspiring thing. All the architectual intricacies did not stop me looking straight towards the sky!
I love the color and angle of this photograph!
Love the pics and the thoughts. When I see the grand cathedrals in Europe, I think of the competition of times long ago between the church and the royal families for the support of the people.
