St. Paul’s Cathedral – London

For some reason, this is one of my favorite “keepers” from my photo-safari through the UK in the spring of 2017.

St. Paul’s Cathedral is one of the most dominant features on the London Skyline. After the original Gothic structure was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666, it was rebuilt by the great Christopher Wren in a baroque style with a great dome instead of a spired central tower.

Maybe I like this shot because of the asymmetry the concentric circles from this vantage point beneath the dome. Or maybe I just like some of the colors that I pulled out with a variety of software (Luminar) and Lightroom presets.

Or maybe I just like it for its defiance: photography is strictly prohibited within the confines of the Cathedral. So, of course, I have no idea how this shot found its way into my camera… 😜 .
