A Spiral Staircase from below

    Newer Older

    I experimented a bit with post-processing on this and hopefully, it's not too much of sharpening.

    Update: Thanks for the kind comments! In case you're interested: The staircase is at [Wikipedia:] Castle Hartenfels in Torgau. Here are other photos on flickr, on some you can see the staircase as well. It's called "Wendelstein" in German. Here's another flickr user's photo of the staircase seen from outside.

      This is a unique and perfect angle to capture the intricacy of these stairs - love the lighting, too!

      Absolutely beautiful! BTW, I saw a wall art very similar to your photo at a model home in San Diego. It was black/white and was split in 3 panels. If interested, google "Bella Vista in San Elijo by Ryland Homes".
