May 25: Bamberg – Michelsberg 2

Of course I went into the Michaelskirche to explore.

The grand nave. The flora covering the vault are neat. I wonder if each one is a different species.

Another really neat modern light fixture, jewel-like.

The north aisle with a variety of light colors and intensities.

Another powerful sun spot.

An enormous pier at the corner of the apse.

Some pretty gnarly silhouettes here.

Back toward the entrance.

More chiaroscuro.

Now from the diagonal you can see the deep contours of the vestibule and organ.

From the entrance to the Kirche, the south and west dormitory wings.

Deep tree shade on the south side of the yard.

The grand flow of steps up to the church.

A rather tenuous spot for a web, I would think, but some nice solar gain.
