Urban landscapes: A room in God’s cathedral


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.
