n honor of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and in acknowledgement of the terrible fire today, here is a shot of this remarkable 800 year old French icon I took a few years ago. I digitally placed a gibbous moon behind the famous spire, and I photographed this from the back side to show the flying buttresses because I find them to be intriguing. This was the solution in medieval times for supporting the heavy roof and to prevent it from caving in -- which tragically it did today. I used a 70-200mm lens set to 100mm, and my settings were 30 seconds, f/16, and 200 ISO. I used auto white balance in this situation due to the mixed lighting sources.
