Photographer's Note

Another photograph of York Minster, this time from the cathedral's magnificent interior. Here we are looking, from near the altar, along the nave to the west door and the Great West Window above it. And, if you look towards the top of that window you will see that the tracery outlines a heart shape - and this window, which dates from 1338, is often referred to as the "Heart of Yorkshire".

But today, on Easter Sunday, these seats will be empty: there will be no congregation, no preacher, no communion and all the doors will be closed on account of the threat of the Coronavirus pandemic. But, thankfully, modern day technology does at least allow one to hear an Easter message from York Minster here:

ISO 640, 1/30 sec at f/5.6, focal length 24mm.

Happy Easter to All!
