Picture of the Day: Long Exposure Candle Trails at Salisbury Cathedral

In a long-exposure , the interior of Salisbury is illuminated by trails of candles carried by choristers during the annual “darkness to light” advent procession in Salisbury, England, on November 25, 2011.

The service – which begins with the medieval cathedral in total darkness and silence before the Advent 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 1,300 candles and is a spectacular start to the Christmas season.
