Saint Mary's Catherdral, Sydney

With a history of more than 200 years the St. Mary's Cathedral, was built and rebuilt over a period of time. This cathedral, built of yellow sand stone stands majestically in the town center. 
Staying in the vicinity of of the St. Mary's Cathedral, enabled me to have my customary early morning walk in the beautiful surroundings. This is early Morning shot 


The interiors are beautiful, but when I got back later in the day the Sunday mass was on, I could only join the mass and refrain from photography. Good at times, enables one to appreciate the grandeur with the naked eye rather than the lens.
