Photography of Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland




I was pleasantly surprised to see that they had allowed photography Rosslyn Chapel, or rather, that the person that took all of these shots got away with it. As far as what I have read about the curators at this site, photography is no longer allowed inside. I will, however, take this moment to say I'm thrilled to see another side of it considering, everything I've seen thus far is from Wikipedia.

There's some fascinating information on the Wikipedia page. Do you know what's going on with the roof? I'm curious why the photo appears to show a modern roof over the original. Maybe it's something to do with the restoration work.

@John

You would be right. There is an enormous roof over the top of it right now.It's a 13 million dollar restoration project, but I think it's worth it.

It's a shame they don't allow any photography because without flash it should do no harm. It seems to be a step in the direction of "copyrighting" their images. They tried/are trying that with the Eiffel Tower but, I think, only when it's illuminated. How they can enforce it, I really don't know. Presumably that counts only if you sell the image.
