Was für eine Oase, tausend Dank für diesen Ort.

Einen guten neuen Monat dir.

'Tis a glorious shot...it's the light! Always the light!

Got to say it is a beautiful structure but I think it functions best when it's totally quiet inside! :-)

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Wow, how'd you manage to catch it completely empty?

Julie said...

The interior of this church is gorgeous, Ciel. Catching churches completely empty in this day and age is not in the least difficult.

I agree a very tranquil place in which to start the new month.

Michelle said...

I love that superb silence. Beautiful image.

Thérèse said...

Ce n'est pas le moment de faire soi-meme un bruit car alors tout resonne et on n'a plus qu'a se faire tout petit.

Jack said...

It is spectacular, Ciel. How did you find it empty?

Randy said...

Marvelous choice.

Dianne said...

Oh! to be there and drink in the the beauty of this wonderful place. Tranquil indeed!

Bob Crowe said...

A good enough reason to go to church by itself. Our version, the Cathedral-Basilica of St. Louis, is just as silent.

Paula said...

I forgot today is theme day! Yours is perfect, such serenity.

Halcyon said...

It does look quite tranquil. :)
Happy June!!!

Just too bad it can't be as tranquil with people in it.

Very tranquil, I can feel the coolness inside.

Surement un endroit frais, et plein de bancs pour en profiter..

Clever interpretation of the theme and wonderful shot, Ciel.
