After moving on from the Nidelva, there was a brief stop at a cafe that was recommended by our hosts in Oslo, on the way to Nidaros Cathedral.
I can vouch for this dark-chocolate-based hot chocolate at Dromedar Kaffebar.
After the chocolate infusion, it was time to hit the main objective for the day, photographing the Nidaros Cathedral.
This was the view from the side as I approached. Impressive, but not nearly as much as the western face.
Bad news first: due to the cathedral being an open place of worship during all open hours, they do not allow any photography inside.
While this is frustrating as a photographer, as no mention of this is made anywhere on their website, it is understandable, so I went with plan B.
Plan B was to photograph a multi-gigapixel HDR panorama of the front of the cathedral… which is a bit of an undertaking.
To do such a thing, it took approximately 800 exposures, which included of bracketed shots of +/- 2 EV.
What sort of detail was captured?
A lot. These aren’t even fully zoomed in photos.
Scale is a bit hard to tell here, of course, so this should help a bit. (These people were desperately trying to get the keeshonds to cooperate for photos, but the two on the right were not inclined to cooperate.)
