Mirror Image, Ely Cathedral by John Dalkin

Mirror Image, Ely Cathedral by 


In the Nave of Ely Cathedral, Cambridgeshire, England, stands a large Mirror — so that visitors are able to see the beautiful ceiling without straining their necks !

Built by William the Conqueror as a prominent outpost after the bloody and lengthy rebellion by Hereward he Wake, Ely Cathedral stands as a fine example of William’s devotion to his Religion and to his overwhelming victory for the Heart’s and Minds of that mixed of all races called the britons… Less well known is that “The Lord Protector” Oliver Cromwell closed the Cathedral for 10 years, due to a falling out with the local (Catholic) Clergy. Cromwell used it as a stable for his Calvary Horses..!

    Beautiful image John, they have considerately provided one of these at Lincoln in the Chancel too. There is something about distance shots in churches that just grips me. Fave.

    Love this John – similar to the Font reflection in Salisbury Cathedral. Certainly adds a sense of drama to your image.
