Arches #7


I realise that you are probably over these arches by now. This series of photos are from the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Bendigo, the heart of the Victorian goldfields. It took 24 years to build and you can see the spire from just about anywhere in town.

I was there just as the sun was setting and really liked the shadows cast by the different parts of the arches. Unfortunately, there was a service underway when I was there so I didn't get to check out the interior.

Hang in there. Only two more cathedral photos to go and then I'll move on to something else.

I'm not "over" these photos, at all! I actually quite like them - I love the texture and colours of the sandstone, and the carved details on the edge of the arches.
