Europe in general is home to thousands upon thousands of gorgeous cathedrals and stunning churches. This one in particular is the Cathedral of St. Peter, located in Regensburg, Germany. It is a wonderous example of Gothic Archeiture. I honestly think you could take 100 pictures of this church and still not take in all of the amazing detail. It is suggested that it was originally built somewhere around 700 AD, and was rebuilt in the 1200s after multiple fires. The church has been just recently restored.
I remember when I was shooting this particular church that I desperately wanted a wider angle lens. 🙂 It is a massive piece of architecture. However, I was happy with the angle of this shot, and the ability to get most of the gorgeous front of the cathedral. It made me feel like the church was reaching up to the heavens. Of course the blue and clouds make a very complementary background to that particular feeling. Overall, I was quite pleased with the result.

“A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.” -Antoine de Saint-Exupery
