This week Patti has challenged us to “break the rules and go beyond the traditional realistic image of an object, scene, or element” to post a picture of something abstract. I immediately thought of these photos, taken at Elgin Cathedral in Elgin, Moray, in the northeast part of Scotland.
This is the beautiful vaulted ceiling and column in the cathedral’s Chapter House, an octagonal room in which the cathedral clergy met daily to discuss business. The Chapter House was built in the early 13th century and remodeled in the late 1400s.
Have a great week, everyone!

These are wonderful Wendy. A great subject for further exploration. Well done!
Thank you very much!
Wendy – those first two photos are really interesting – and the tests of true photos give a bit more context – nice choice for the challenge (and holy old…)
That’s exactly what I was hoping for. Abstract at first with more context as one scrolls down. Thank you! 🙂
These make me breathless, Wendy. So beautiful, so very beautiful. Perfect. Thank you.
Aww, what a nice comment. Thank you! 🙂
This is great, Wendy. Perfect for the challenge and beautifully captured.
I appreciate it! 🙂
Beautiful! Each image has an abstract feel about it, but taken together they give me a solid sense of that physical place.
I’m so glad! Thank you! 🙂
Magnificent cathedral ceiling. I like the angle you captured these photos.
Those are excellent.

Wonderful photographs of amazing workmanship.
The stonemasons that built it were phenomenal!
Soooo old, soooo beautiful.
Yes on both counts! 🙂
