Urban landscapes: A room in God’s cathedral

BASILICA OF SAINTE ANNE DE BEAUPRE, NEAR QUEBEC CITY

One of the most spectacular cathedrals in North America, this Roman Catholic place of pilgrimage is said to be a place of miracles. This photograph was made on my second trip to the basilica; I was simply too overwhelmed by the architecture to produce good images on the first trip.
This time I used my tripod unimpeded and had lots of opportunities to make long exposures. Even the basement “chapel” is eye-poppingly spectacular, a fitting tribute to the Creator’s artistic awesomeness. When I finished making pictures, my wife & I stayed for a very moving and reverent worship service. Nikon D50, tripod.
