Simply stunning, Christopher!
Wonderfully composed.
LOVE how the colored light bathes the gorgeous scene!
Must seem magical and surreal to be amongst such beauty!
I can't wait to see this some day.

The light and colors are so incredible in this beautiful space -- you just can't go wrong. I particularly love the receding arches down the corridor on the left. #9862938

I wanted to try a higher perspective on the south arcade, flooded with early morning fall/winter light. My earlier versions are typically near floor level.
Here, the wide angle 10mm in portrait orientation captures the aisle's arches, a niche statue and the tracery carving above the tomb. Also, a glimpse
of other columns and arches in the main nave, plus the triforium level and far north windows.
The column bathed in blue light rising above the dried floral arrangement is the colorful result of the famous "Space Window".
Thanks, Nikki M. for valuable input on the image!
