Photographer's Note

First of photos documenting the trip I took during Easter to the south of England. I have visited Salisbury only shortly but fortunately it was exactly at the blue hour time. Fact that the cathedral has the highest spire in the UK did not help me to include it all in the frame but in the end I managed that somehow. Lovely place I would love to return there having more time to explore and enjoy.

Salisbury Cathedral , formally known as the Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is an Anglican cathedral in Salisbury, and one of the leading examples of Early English architecture. The main body of the cathedral was completed in only 38 years, from 1220 to 1258.
The cathedral has the tallest church spire in the United Kingdom (123m/404ft). Visitors can take the "Tower Tour" where the interior of the hollow spire, with its ancient wood scaffolding, can be viewed. The cathedral also has the largest cloister and the largest cathedral close in Britain (80 acres (320,000 m2)). It contains the world's oldest working clock (from AD 1386) and has the best surviving of the four original copies of Magna Carta (all four original copies are in England). In 2008, the cathedral celebrated the 750th anniversary of its consecration. The cathedral is the mother church of the Diocese of Salisbury and seat of the Bishop of Salisbury.
