Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge theme is “Contrast”.

Here are a couple of high-contrast pictures taken at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., without flash.

Rose Window, National Cathedral, Washington, D.C.

Altar at the National Cathedral, Washington, D.C.

I took these photos in January of 2007. (The Cathedral wasn’t nearly this dark, to the human eye. But the light coming through the stained glass and the additional lights around the altar made for greater contrast in a very large interior space than the camera could deal with.)
