How magnificent. I don't think that word comes close to a good description. Divine, maybe? :) Splendid Sunday to you too, Genie..
And how nice for a sunny day!
Magnifique! This a truly spectacular church, thanks for sharing it with us.
Superb image, beautifully composed to show the height and grandeur of the Basilique.I'm impressed Genie, would you really abseil down such a high building? I think it would be the most incredible experience but I'll let you tell me about it oui!
Une photo simplement GRANDIOSE...Gros bisous
Wow, that is magnificent. Diane
That is a beautiful basilique and the stained windows are magnifique. I love your idea of showing churches on Sunday. I might copy that one day. Have a nice Sunday
Nice shot Genie. I don't think I have a lens wide enough to capture the scene.
It's the history of the first Bishop of Paris, St Denis that inspired us to visit the Cathedral. The myth of St Denis with his head in his hands after being decapitated and walking to his resting place is worth the visit.
It was a magical place. Beautiful.V
Inspiring! Makes me want to just kneel and worship and continue looking up into the glory!
wonderful curves and color...perfect title for this.
One of the best places to visit. Beautiful shot. :)
Cette basilique est une réussite à tous les points de vue.Bonne fin de week-end, Genie!
Magnifique works for me too! Je suis eblouie, Genie.Bon dimanche!
Stunning photo, Genie! This image reminds me of a prism the way it reflects the light.
A soaring ,elegant space taken from an interesting angle.I really like the candles!Bon dimanche Genie,Ruby
A very royal basilica indeed.
Beautiful Genie... now is that perhaps from a certain day back in December that I remember well ??? What a heavenly view of those soaring columns and all that gorgeous glass !
It almost looks like St. Chapelle.
Bon dimanche to you too Genies. Thanks for this gorgeous shot. I've definnitely got Basilique Saint Denis on my list for my next visit to Paris.I found a new to me photo blog this week, and she also visited Saint Denis recently= thought you would enjoy it toohttp://52suburbs.com/2012/04/13/saint-denis/
Monday morning here. And what a peaceful way to start the week. :)
Wow! I would like to visit in order to experience this space.
What a wonderful place for some meditation.
Owen, yes you were our guide and how wonderful to meet you and your sweet wife (in January). We did some serious "snapping" that day and look forward to our next meeting.Leon and Sue, the St Denis history is all over Paris and I will have another photo next Sunday from a different church.For all of you, if you are in Paris, this basilica is worth the short Métro ride and you will discover much more in the area surrounding the church.Bises,Genie
Louise, that link has great coverage of St Denis and some wonderful photographs. Although we were there for about 8 hours we knew that it was quite different from Paris, different in a great sense, and we met many kind people along the way.Bises,Genie
Certainly one of the best shots I have seen from this basilica! You really managed to capture the glory, the hight... of the gothic! (If you consider that "gothic" initially was a negative judgment on architecture!)
So much colour in those stained glass windows! Fantastic!
Elle est vraiment une merveille. Quelles couleurs!Merci pour tes compliments dans mon blog.A bientot!Passe un beau fin de semaine.
Magical!! I just love the French cathedrals -- in the 90s, we spent two long vacations in France on photo shoot pilgrimages ---sigh---
