Interiors Strasbourg Cathedral, France
West end entrance with it its magnificent rose window.
The interiors were dark, in fact darkest of all the cathedrals I have visited. Photography was permitted, with no flash, no stand; I struggled to get good shots. Almost 50% of my pics here have a blur or shake. An eye catching piece there is the large pipe organ fixed high up on the northern wall of the cathedral. It has been there since 14th century. Look at its glow, hard to believe it is so old.
The stain glass windows here are from medieval ages, and I wish it was a sunny day for the cathedral interiors would have been flooded with colored light streaming in from the windows.
What we missed doing is climbing the tower. The cathedral is in the heart of the city and you get mesmerizing views of the city from here. There is a queue for this and usually entrance is on batch basis, they wait till they reach the required count to allow you up. We had to exit as we intended to do a walking tour of Strasbourg. Better be content with sights from ground than birds-eye view from up there.
