Here is a little info off of the Cathedral’s website to go with this image. As with so many other shoots, I run arround like a mad man capturing the essence of the location, and neglect to grab any info. I guess thats another great use for the internet!
Check out the larger view on the view on black link for the detail on the red rim at the base of the dome. These cameras are freakin’ amazing!
The Cathedral of Saint Paul is one of the largest and most historic churches in the United States. Its architectural grandeur and prominent site make it an integral part of the landscape of the capital city of Minnesota—whose name derives from the title of this great building. The Cathedral is rightly listed as a landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. It is not an exaggeration to say that it is a treasure for all Americans and one that we can proudly compare to the great cathedrals of Europe.
