Église de la Madeleine - les cierges


Église de la Madeleine


This magnificent church is well-attended
by the parishioners and visitors.


The corners of the church are bright with candlelight
and often with the music of concerts.

That's an amazing capture of the candles.

The church may be magnificent, but so is this image. I find candle light difficult to capture with my camera.......... Recently I picked up my camera for the first time in 5 months and had a wonderful afternoon photographing old French cars - extremely satisfying.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to get back to my writing as yet, but I hoping that, with time, urge to ramble on again will return. Bisous

Add just a few characters and your christmas card is ready. Great one. I like it.

Beautiful photo! It would make an exquisite Christmas card! Did you use your low-light lense? The candle flame is just perfect! Welcome home!!

Breathtaking! I miss Paris—and my peripatetic pals (un grand soupir).

This amazing image leaves «Louis» thinking he is smelling the wax of the candles in this beautiful worship space.
