York Minster is a Gothic cathedral in York, England and is one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe alongside Cologne Cathedral. The Minster is the seat of the Archbishop of York, the second-highest office of the Church of England, and is cathedral for the Diocese of York; it is run by a Dean and Chapter under the Dean of York. The formal title of York Minster is The Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St Peter in York.1 The title “Minster” is attributed to churches established in the Anglo Saxon period as missionary teaching churches, and serves now as an honorific title.1 Services in the Minster are sometimes regarded as on the High Church, Anglo-Catholic end of the Anglican continuum.2

It has a very wide Decorated Gothic nave and chapter house, a Perpendicular Gothic choir and east end, and Early English north and south transepts. The nave contains the West Window, constructed in 1338, and over the Lady Chapel in the east end is the Great East Window, (finished in 1408), the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world. In the north transept is the Five Sisters Window, each lancet being over 16 metres (52 ft) high. The south transept contains the famous Rose window.

    The colours of the sky are amazing and this is not one of the common shots of the Minster. I can feel some real admiration for your subject and like that you have not tried to modify this photograph… I believe it would not have added anything to the image.

    Anyway enough of that, I came by to say…

  • thanks very much Joanne
