    Yes, that’s what was worrying me.  I wanted to see if there was any correlation between tilt and geographical position, so I Googled ‘Cathedrals with hollow spires’, and Catedral de Santa Maria de Burgos came up pretty quickly.  The trouble was, going to Google Maps to find out the lat & long showed the nave orientated NE/SW, which means that the photo was taken looking towards about 040 degrees.  Well in that part of Spain, the Sun must hardly ever be visible above the horizon in that direction, if at all.  DaveP
