Photographer's Note

The 11th century stone vaulted ceilinged crypt at Winchester Cathedral is home to a solitary life size statue entitled" Sound II" by Antony Gormley. Ground water seeps into the crypt which is lit by the natural light falling through the side windows. The water provides a natural mirror by which to view the detail in the beautifully vaulted ceiling. As there have been heavy rains in England of late the water is up to the knees of the statue. It is a very serene and beautiful sight, well worth a visit. I tried to look for other images on TE of this and the one I found was when the crypt floor was dry.
I didn't have my Canon with me so this was hand held on my little Lumix
