Great ACL1978 2013-05-10 20:06

Really stunning work, John. You've put the 'gothic' in gothic cathedral here with the deeply dramatic lighting and perfect conversion to B&W. The glow of the fascinating spire against the cloudy sky is fantastic.

Your history of the place is wonderful, and of course you know I appreciate a long, historically erudite note! You don't say, however, what the building is today (or at least I don't think I saw it here). Does it remain an active church, or has it been re-purposed into a museum or other use?

In any event, this simply makes me want to visit Edinburgh even more, to get a crack at this beautiful building and the rest of the city!

Default To ACL1978: Principal place of worship of the Church of Scotland in Edinburgh..

Hi Andrew,

Thank you for your kind remarks about this one!

I'm sorry that my note was a little less than comprehensive and I did forget to indicate what this place actually was these days! It is, in fact, now the principal place of worship of the Church of Scotland in Edinburgh.

As you might have deduced from my note, you can take photographs inside this building - for the princely sum of 2 and that, surprisingly, allows you to use a tripod and even flash (if there's not a church service going on). Last time I was there I forgot to take my tripod with me but next time I shall be sure to take it as it's pretty dim in there.

Kind Regards,


P.S. I have corrected the first paragraph of my note to prevent further confusion! Thank you!
