Distant Spire

I was doing some errands downtown and noticed how the spire of St James Cathedral was framed by the buildings along this street. St James is about 1/2 mile south of where I was and I have shown you the front of it before (here).

Hope you didn't have to stand in the middle of the street for this shot. :-)

I did stand in the middle of the road but it is one-way coming towards me so I could see the cars coming!

Beautiful spire!

what a neat color. Is the roof tile or copper?
If tile, I like that they went with this color rather than a red. It's more in tune with the sky.
Hope you are well, RedPat!
