 I love how he Minster dominates the entire town. You can catch glimpses of it from nearly anywhere.

The light and shadow inside York Minster are dramatic without being dark and oppressive like some older cathedrals. Light and color stream in through the windows and reflect off the light colored arches.

Yet another watercolor from within the York Minster. This time a view of the choir looking back into the main area of the church. I love how atmospheric this turned out.

Church Sculpture, York, UK

The city of York is filled with historical artifacts and architecture, even beyond the Minster itself. This sculpture on the side of a church caught my eye as we walked into the center of town.

York — Jorvik, in the Viking Language — was an important city long before the Minster was built and boasts a Viking Museum. While the museum was closed for remodeling when we visited, many artifacts were in temporary exhibits throughout the town, including the the remains of the old Norman church, hidden beneath the current Minster

York Minster, Front Facade Watercolor, York, UK [Watercolor]

York Minster, Front Facade Watercolor, York, UK

The minute you step out of then York train station you can see it there in the distance. Even today it towers over the old, walled, medieval city. As you make your way to the main road you can see this facade a 1/4 mile away or so.

I have had the opportunity to visit many great buildings — Notre Dame and San Chappelle in Paris, St. Peter’s in Rome, Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London and countless churches and palazzos in Sicily. Still, York Minster was among those great structures in beauty and emotional impact. We spent several hours before and after lunch exploring its large expanses and I probably took almost a hundred photos here alone. I highly recommend you visit if you get a chance.
