St Paul's Anglican Cathedral, Dunedin by 

St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand, is a magnificent example of 20th century neo-gothic architecture and is built almost entirely of Oamaru stone.

Construction of St Paul’s Cathedral in Duendin began in 1913 with the laying of the foundation stone on 8 June 1915.
Huge foundations, large piers and a tremendous vaulted ceiling, the only one in stone in New Zealand, rose from the ground, forming the new Cathedral’s nave.

Later, limited finances were to curtail the completion of the cathedral as originally planned until many years later.
But the wonderful stonework and craftsmanship remains today in the now completed cathedral.

An avid photographer, both still and moving, since I was 10 years old, I later discovered and developed a particular love of macro, which is now one of my main genres. More recently, however, my repertoire has broadened to include stained glass windows and particularly the stunning beauty of outback New South Wales and South, Australia.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of the Creation, captured and presented here for you.

    Beautiful. Lovely work!

  • THank you so much Jonathan. I’m thrilled you like this happy accident of a photo. I have little idea of how I managed to capture the transcendent beauty of this cathedral, so you praise is somewhat unfounded….don’t think the work was mine somehow?!?
    But it’s very nice all the same! ;)
