    The cathedral is amazing in close ups.... (well, at least I think so):

        Perhaps the most ...... ehhh.... the best.... ehhh.... the most significant statue on the western front of the Nidarosdomen Cathedral:

              I enjoyed all these views of Trondheim, with so many different colours of the city lights.
              But the last one, #1183/4 ...Ohhh look ...a shooting star! …I bet you made a wish

              The details of the carvings when seen in your marvellous close-ups are indeed magnificent and breathtaking. I see that you are, not unnaturally, selecting King Olav Tryggvason (#1188) as especially significant, but may I be allowed to mention what for me is outstandingly significant and best? - SAINT CECILIA no less!!!!!

              In my excitement I don't sound as if I'm being at all ladylike and modest, but actually SHE is. You see in #1185/1 it is St. Catherine on the right who is actually ON the west front of the cathedral, and is looking rather self-importantly pleased with her status. Whereas Cecilia on the left has a more modestly placed position on the side of the tower. She's not conventionally pretty but rather interesting looking in a shy yet cheeky kind of way. I'm sure she loves her vantage point and I bet she doesn't miss a thing happening down below! ...looks like she's spotted you with your big lens out of the corner of her eye!

              I so identify with and love this statue, and it is an absolute thrill to at last see close up photographs of such quality which really does it justice. Thank you so very very much Captain, and believe me these images of yours have stirred up an absolute explosion of delight and gratitude.

                I did make a wish, but so far, it has not come true yet..... impatiently waiting for the wish to come true.

                Sain Cecilia and King Olav Tryggvasson in the same sentence.... oh, well.... that is a mouthful. I'm anyhow so pleased that you enjoyed these, because I do have a few more to share.

              More of the exterior of the dome: in engaging detail:
