Nave, Milan Duomo

The interior of the Milan Duomo was a shock for me (to say the least). It was the first Gothic church I’ve ever visited, and while I wasn’t sure what to expect, the dark, slightly spooky cavernous interior sure wasn’t it. Despite the size of the cathedral, it’s interior is surprisingly small, so we didn’t spend too much time here. The bright spots here are the stained glass windows- be sure to wander behind the altar!

  1. All the old churches round where I live are this style – if not quite so grand. They can be difficult to photograph because of the dynamic range between the windows and the dark places. This place looks great for photography. I often go for detail, where the play of light can be quite interesting.
