A church in suburban Victoria, on the southern end of Vancouver Island. It may even qualify as a cathedral! Anyway I liked the warm cold color contrast between the reddish tinted stonework and the blue sky. I'll hunt around on internet for more info.
Taken with a 28mm wide angle lens, so there is some lens barrel distortion. I've used this pattern: /|\ & let the verticals fall where they will.
Okay, found it. This is the Methodist Church:
"The Metropolitan Methodist Church was called the Metropolitan United Church for the first thirty years of its existence. The Church traces its origin to events of 1858. Its first service of worship was held on the morning of February 13, 1859."

A good example of Victorian Gothic architecture designed to last. Captured under a very nice light with good tones and textures. Thanks for sharing, have a good Sunday, what's left of it for you.

Distortion which you could have minimized with ShiftN perhaps… But it is not serious because the photograph is interesting, the architecture of this church is original with all these apparent stones. The good exposure gives natural colors and pleasant contrasts. Well done Chris, thank you.
With all my friendships and very good Sunday,

bella immagine della chiesa dall'architettura in pietra con una bella luce e una buona inquadratura.
Mi piace la colorazione azzurrata dai riflessi delle finestre.

A perfect lightijng which is having a good effect on the colors. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the Victoria methodist church. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.

Superbe architecture imposante ! C'est une belle mise en valeur avec des couleurs très naturelles. Et en plus vu ton POV, les lignes ne sont pas trop déformées, c'est bien. Bravo à toi !
