Get your excuses in first they say so before we look at any of the imagery from inside Ely, I need to make some qualifying remark about the conditions they were taken in. The traditional design for a cathedral isn’t light and airy; medieval architecture favoured tall narrow windows because they were easier to construct in heavy thick walls. Gothic style produces Gothic lighting.
So as I didn’t have a tripod to shoot long exposures in the gloom, I had to resort to a high ISO. Less chance of blurring, but much of the sharp detail lost to the resulting noise. Technical details, but a necessary compromise if I was to get some shots.
Next decision was the choice of lens.
Ely is vast, so a wide angle gives some sense of scale…
