Behind the Scenes: A Rare View From Atop Washington National Cathedral
Hope you're not afraid of heights.

Comments () | Published May 2, 2013

For a couple of months, photographer Colin Winterbottom followed the renovation work on Washington National Cathedral after it was damaged in the August 2011 earthquake. His photographs, now on display in the Pilgrims Observation Gallery, yielded a unique chronicle of the highly technical repairs—and a reminder of the majestic views afforded from the cathedral’s peaks.

In this photo, Emma Cardini of Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates examines the central tower.

This article appears in the May 2013 issue of The Washingtonian.

  • So where can I see more photos (without actually traveling across the country)?
