Wow, Pat! A great image of my cathedral! :) I found it extremely tough to capture this special place, but you have managed it! The path looks like an aisle.
I was there with one of my colleagues and we were deeply moved. However, we were haunted by two loud women with heavy New York accents. They duplicated our every move, no matter what we tried to shake them. Even I know to be quiet in church! :)

Thank you one and all! It was one of the last captures of my morning.It was difficult to get the right exposure. I shot in raw and worked it some... Steve, you chick magnet... they were just stocking you.

You, know, I left my congratulations for this one, but I never apparently managed to tell you how utterly wonderful it is. The light, the sense of peace. It, and your beautiful capture, makes one breathe in, wanting to inhale the whole environment. This is simply gorgeously done.

Pat, I love this! I can't do better than what Mitch said, so I add my voice (and I really mean it, too!). I've got the soundtrack of singing angels going in my head....

I was in San Francisco for a couple of weeks as a 19-year old back in 1969 and had the pleasure of visiting the Muir Woods. Oh to visit again..... with a camera!

This is one of my favorite of yours and not that I like the competition but I'm glad to see you entered it in the Summit contest. I never commented on it as I was new and green at the time but I had emailed you privately and we discussed where you took it. You most likely don't even remember but I do. I still hope to capture light beams like this one day. Just gorgeous Patricia
