When I entered this cathedral at mid-day, I knew I had come at exactly the right moment. Light streaming through its great Rose Window was painting all the colors of the rainbow on the walls and floors of the cathedral. Using a low vantage point with a 24mm wideangle converter lens on my Canon G5, I moved in as close as I could to these columns to make them seem as large as possible, yet still include the Rose Window as context. The unexpected colors suggest not only beauty, but also festivity Ė they have turned a building of gray granite into an incongruous mosaic of reds, blues, greens, and yellows. It is as if a child has splashed the interior of the cathedral in watercolors. Almost more playful than spiritual, these colors bring an ancient building to life in a memorable way.
