Stairway to Chapter House, Wells Cathedral, England

wells cathedral england chapter houseThe stairway up to the Chapter House and residences of the Wells Cathedral in England. The soft light coming through the windows just enhanced the edges of the stone steps, rounded and chipped by centuries of monks' steps.

Taken with the Canon Powershot S110, ISO 2000, f/8.0, 1/40 sec. Minimal processing in Lightroom, mostly just lowering the contrast to soften the image even more than the diffuse light through the windows suggested. Then imported the image into Silver Efex Pro to turn it into black and white.

    • Thanks, Corinne. I once saw a book of black and white photos of Chartres Cathedral and it really made me think of all the shapes of cathedral construction. Usually more interesting that the Christian iconography, if you ask me.
