I found myself not far from the National Cathedral again on Thursday, the day after I had been shooting there on a ticketed early morning Photography Tour (see the post here). And unlike the previous day, the sun was out and it was mid-afternoon. The nave was still without chairs and I had my camera with me. So why not?
Afternoon Light, National Cathedral
My main goal was to get an image of the Rose Window with the light passing through, as if “painting” the walls. While I was setting up, the Cathedral Choir began a rehearsal for an upcoming performance and the music, perfectly selected for the classic acoustics of a great cathedral space, filled the nave as I worked. Only a few others were there. It was as close to a perfect situation as any photographer could want.
