York Minster, Outside Views
You can imagine that it isn't easy to capture pictures of the outside of York Minster that do the magnificient building even a shade of justice. But I tried.
Processions in the Middle ages would have entered in the west and passed the length of the building, but today, the south transept gate with the rosette window serves as main entrance.East nave
The east nave shows an additional, shorter transept; that's the place where the quire is located inside. Crossing tower
Part of the main tower situated atop the crossing, seen from the west in the evening sun. West nave
It's difficult to distinguish, but behind those pillars standing up into the air, you can see the flying buttresses that connect the aisles with the main nave. It's a feature serving as support but even more as decoration.
