Ely Cathedral

I find Ely a difficult place to photograph.  We have this magnificent Norman cathedral but so many distractions to mar its outlines - trees in awkward places, white vans, etc.  I've chosen a quieter view behind the Bishop's Palace.  The Gallery is usually a busy thoroughfare but, with coronavirus restrictions still partially in place, there are fewer parked cars.

The Russian cannon on the green in front of the cathedral was captured at the battle of Sebastopol and given to Ely City by Queen Victoria in 1860 after the Crimean War.  I chose this viewpoint to blot out the tree that stands in front of the cathedral.
