In these brief moments, I see as though for the very first time. Without spoken word, natures voice testifies of a greater kind. I capture photographs because I am compelled to, even if no one will ever see them. I realise it helps me understand life and who made it. WP — Kiama Australia.

The Cathedral of Vilnius is the main Roman Catholic Cathedral of Lithuania. It is situated in Vilnius Old Town, just off of Cathedral Square. Dedicated to Saints Stanislaus and Ladislaus, the church is the heart of Catholic spiritual life in Lithuania.
Inside, there are more than forty works of art dating from the 16th through 19th centuries, including frescoes and paintings of various sizes. During the restoration of the Cathedral a fresco dating from the end of the 14th century, the oldest known fresco in Lithuania, was found on the wall of one of the cathedral’s underground chapels.
During the Soviet regime initially cathedral was converted into a warehouse. Masses were celebrated again starting in 1985, although the cathedral was still officially called “The Gallery of Images” at that time. In 1989, its status as a cathedral was restored.

My favourite rock in all of Australia. The mighty Cathedral Rock in Kiama. This location is quite close to home which means I visit here often, not just to shoot. This light show from the other morning takes the cake for the strongest sunrise I have seen.
