Nightly Image: St. Peter’s, Rome


This HDR was shot in the sumputously decorated basilica. The vast basilica’s 615ft long marble-encrusted interior contains 11 chapels and 45 alters in addition to a wealth of precious works of art. This shot is of Throne of St.Peter in Glory. In the domed apse, the window above Bernini’s Baroque sculpture  lights the image of the holy spirit, shown as a dove amid clouds, rays of sunlight and flights of angels.
