Vaulted Central Hall, Natural History Museum, London


This is a photo of the main hall of the Natural History Museum in London.
The museum is home to life and earth science specimens comprising some 70 million items within five main collections: Botany, Entomology, Mineralogy, Palaeontology and Zoology. The museum is a world-renowned centre of research, specialising in taxonomy, identification and conservation. Given the age of the institution, many of the collections have great historical as well as scientific value, such as specimens collected by Darwin.

T'as fait l'ouverture pour avoir une telle prise de vue sans l'habituelle foule qui fréquente les lieux ?...

The perspective and lighting are really astonishing. Great photo. I wonder how it would work in a really huge format ....
