Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 17 March 2008 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Photographed from the bottom of St James Cemetry which is an area where few tourists venture but which provides the most dramatic views of this amazing modern cathedral.

It was started in 1904 and finished in 1978 and was the life's work of architect Giles Gilbert Scott who won the competition to design the cathedral when he was only 22 years old.

NIKON D40 30 seconds F/8.0 ISO 200 15 mm (35mm equiv.)

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Great angle! Superb use of light! In this twilight it doesn't look modern at all, withou tyour information....hard to notice!

@Japanalia: Thanks Gabriela....although it's a modern cathedral it was designed in a gothic style and built using traditional materials like stone rather than concrete.

A truly beautiful capture. The cathedral's history is comparatively short but very interesting.

Extraordinary glowing sky - beautiful colours. Very well done

@Wysterior: Thanks Wys......this shot was right on the limit for the wide angle lens that I was using as my back was pressed up against the cemetry wall to get all the cathedral in frame and not too distorted.

Thanks for stopping by on my page. It's awesome that services like AM3 and VFXY promotes the photoblogging community. I also love this shot; very vibrant hues of the night/evening sky. =D

That sky an amazing backdrop for the cathedral. The colours in the entire shot seem to echo that sky.
