At night, the porch of Washington National Cathedral’s north transept can be a particularly photogenic spot. Lit from a variety of light sources, each with its own hue, the porch’s gothic architecture becomes decorated in light, shadow and color.

Washington National Cathedral - Nave vault - Centennial Gala lighting

In November of 2007, the centennial of Washington National Cathedral’s Foundation Stone was celebrated with a spectacular gala. The interior of the incredible building enjoyed what was, probably, the most spectacular lighting scheme ever seen there. This photo was taken when that lighting scheme was still being designed, but what lighting there was showed off the magnificent, 100+ foot high vaulted ceiling magnificently.
