Tree Cathedral 2
Medieval Christians built cathedrals that soared into the sky as if reaching to touch God. The peaks of the ribbed groin vaults gave Gothic architecture a feeling of endless vertical space pierced by shafts of light from a multitude of arched windows. They are truly an inspired sculptural representation of the spiritual. My cathedral in the woods with it's exquisite sweeping spires and endless vault of pure blue put even this beautiful masterwork to shame.
