Looking Upward Inside

The picture shows a column of the Cologne Cathedral.
The sunlight came through the glass stained windows and illuminated this column.

So I will advise you not only to look upward when you are walking between the skyscrapers, but also inside in buildings with high spaces.

Cologne Cathedral (German: Kölner Dom, officially Hohe Domkirche St. Petrus, Latin: Ecclesia Cathedralis Sanctorum Petri et Mariae, English: High Cathedral of Saints Peter and Mary) is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Cologne, Germany. It is Germany's most visited landmark, attracting an average of 20,000 people a day, currently the tallest twin spired church at 157 meters 515 feet tall.
Construction of Cologne Cathedral commenced in 1248 and was halted in 1473, leaving it unfinished. Work restarted in the 19th century and was completed, to the original plan, in 1880. The cathedral is the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe and has the second-tallest spires. Its two huge spires give it the largest façade of any church in the world.
