The Way Up at the National Cathedral

My previous post showed you one of the wonderful interior hallways in the National Cathedral. This image is an exterior infrared photo of the Eastern side of the main entrance. I chose infrared because the midday light would be too harsh for normal photography, but great for black and white. It was really interesting to look up and see how the spires, arches, and narrow windows all lead your eye straight up to the sky. At the top, you can see some of the scaffolding being used to fix the cathedral's damage from the 2011 earthquake.
