Sainte-Chapelle

*Explored - #94*

 

*Featured on the BBC News : In Pictures Section*

 

If your visiting Paris, then you need to seek out the Sainte-Chapelle. This magnificent building, created in the early 1200's retains the greatest collection of 13th century stained glass anywhere in the world.

 

Not readily advertised or known about, the Chapel resides inside a government courtyard and as such you need to pass through security. Free to under 25's, we wandered in to witness this breathtaking wall to wall display of stained glass windows.

 

Shot on a 17-40 F4 L, this is the view looking up. Usual characteristics of shooting inside an ornate building, it's dark. Three exposures, merged and blended in photoshop. Needs to be viewed large, so hit 'L'.
