Rouen cathedral is a roman catholic gothic cathedral. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Rouen and Normandy.
Completed in 1880, it is a 151 m high monument.
The most famous paintings of the cathedral were produced by the impressionist painter Claude Monet, who painted a large series of paintings of the building. Five of the cathedral paintings are in the musée d'Orsay in Paris..
Rouen Cathedral narrowly escaped destruction in world war II, it took several direct hits from bombs in 1944, which narrowly missed destroying key pillars.

a very nice picture that focuses on the upper part of the famous cathedral exalting both the pointed features and the elaborate decorative patterns of its architecture. The sharpness is very good but what I appreciate the most is the wonderful clear light and the superb, mild and contrasting colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Very impressive vertical shot, it must have been not easy to fit that tall of a building so perfectly into the image. Gothic architecture is so beautiful, distinctive and inspiring. This photo is a great example of such!
