A beautiful shot, Janet! I've always wanted to do a spiral staircase but haven't found one yet. LOL #1379283

FERNANDA KINGSLEY-THOMAS June 11, 2011

Janet I love this. Would love to come across a stair case like that.

What lens did you use to take this shot? I'love love to know how you positioned yourself and the light in the room. #9455559

Hi Fernanda!
Thank you for the comment. This is an old stone staircase located in the Supreme Court building in Washington DC. They did not let visitors go up or down the staircase but they did have a balcony-like opening for visitors to look up or down at the staircase. This made it easy for me to hang over the rail and look down to the bottom of the staircase. It was even more interesting looking up. The problem was very low light and they do not allow tripods in the building. I used a 24-105 lens at 24mm. #9461487
