St Magnus Cathedral – Interior

In my last post I promised you some shots of the interior of St Magnus’ Cathedral, well here you go…

It really is a beautiful Cathedral, very warm and welcoming with lots of interesting details. If you get an opportunity to visit then I highly recommend that you take the tour, as you get to see the upper levels of the Cathedral and the guides are extremely knowledgeable. Liz and I are really looking forward to re-visiting at Christmas this year and we can’t wait to see the lovely red sandstone walls be-decked with festive decorations and sparkly lights.

Just a quick note on the post-processing – I’ve used some of these interior shots to experiment with the detail extractor and tonal contrasts in Nik’s Colour Efex Pro 4. I’m really pleased with the results, but I would of course welcome your feedback.

      Thanks very much Ross, it’s one of my favourite Cathedrals I think and the tour is excellent, so thanks to you and your colleagues for the excellent work. I’m sure we’ll visit Orkney again someday 😊
