Laon Cathedral

Posted by

A foggy night in Laon looking up at the town's dramatic medieval cathedral - Notre Dame de Laon.

Dating from about 1155 it is perhaps the most impressive gothic cathedral I've visited. Laon is quite a small place and it is a surreal sight to see this huge building in such a sleepy little town.

Fantastic composition Ian - love the leading line from the right. I like how the dark pillars at the top frame the illuminated cathedral.
