Notre Dame de Rouen Skywatch

This is the gigantic, gothic Rouen cathedral at nearly 500 feet tall it dwarfs all the other buildings and even the hills behind it. I'm doing a church theme this week and this one touches the sky therfore it's my choice for skywatch friday. Be sure to click the link to see all the Skywatch entries. Link also you can see my other Rouen posts here and here.

  3. Great sky watch! Those old cathedrals really do dominate the sky! I am still amazed at the construction of such structures without power tools and cranes! Thanks for visiting my sky watch.

  6. Amazing! That it still dominates the cityscape around it, and that it is simply so beautiful all on its own! I especially like the limited colour palette, which makes the cathedral the focal centre, with its textures!
