Amazing photo! Salisbury Cathedral hosts 'Darkness to Light' Advent procession
Salisbury Cathedral's Advent Procession 'From Darkness to Light.' The Cathedral is in darkness with a moment of silence as Advent Candle is lit. By the end, the interior of the church is illuminated by 1300 candles.
Matt Cardy / Getty Images The interior of Salisbury Cathedral is illuminated by trails of candles carried by choristers during the annual ‘darkness to light’ advent procession on Nov. 25, in Salisbury, England. The service - which begins with the medieval cathedral in total darkness and silence before the Advent Candle is lit at the West End -is one of the most popular services of the liturgical year. The annual advent service, which takes place over three nights, is a mix of music and readings during which two great candlelit processions move around the different spaces in the 750-year-old building which, by the end, is illuminated by almost 1300 candles and is a spectacular start to the Christmas season. Editor’s note: A long exposure was used in making the image and pictures were received Nov. 27. (via PhotoBlog - Salisbury Cathedral hosts ‘Darkness to Light’ Advent procession)

I'm not particulary religious but I did find Salisbury Cathedral very peaceful and wonderful, particularly the cloisters. Plus they have an original copy of the Magna Carta on display.
