Church Visit - the Cathedral of Cologne

I really was planning to take some photos of the cathedral's interior but it took me until winter to do so. It was late afternoon so it was already quite dark inside. I had to remove my gloves to get a proper grip of the camera so my hands got really frozen afterwards. Hm not quite resistant to cold. Some photos could have been brighter. Now already I know when to adjust. Will improve next time.

What a lovely surprise to see these photos today, on Christmas Eve. I adore the Kölner Dom, though I haven't seen it in person for many years. Thank you for these beautiful photos!

Frohe Weihnachten,
