National Cathedral Nave
Washington National Cathedral is the sixth-largest cathedral in the world and soars higher than a thirty-story skyscraper. Embellished with over two hundred stained-glass windows, a fifty-three-bell carillon, and a 10,647-pipe organ, this Gothic masterpiece can accommodate more than three thousand worshipers.
It took 83 years to build: September 29, 1907, to September 29, 1990.
It is the only Gothic Cathedral built in the 20th century. It was built using the same techniques as those in the 15th century.
This is a 5 bracketed raw shot using my standard processing that I will publish soon.
Hope you enjoy this shot of the nave.
