Photographer's Note

Next time I visit St. Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh, I shall certainly take my tripod with me. Because, perhaps surprisingly for a place such as this, it is possible to buy a ticket for £2 to allow you to take photographs within the church and, also surprisingly, there is no restriction on the use of either flash or tripods.

But this picture was taken handheld using available light (of which there isn't very much in here) looking eastward along the nave of the church.

St. Giles' Cathedral sits on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh's Old Town. Despite its name, St Giles' Cathedral is not actually a cathedral. The title gives an idea of its magnificent scale, but was only strictly correct for two short periods when Bishops served in the Scottish Church, from 1633-8 and from 1661-89.

You can read more about this magnificent place if you look at the official website of the church here.
