Church of the Holy Sepulchre - Spectral Light by 

An amazing beam of light shines across the dome above what is considered to be the place where Jesus was crucified, in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The air is filled with smoke from incense and candles

    Wow Neil, what a spectacular shot!! :))) This image certainly has a strong feeling about it! Could you sense it when you were there? Vicki :)

  • Thanks heap Vicki, I always appreciate your comments!
    It is a VERY, VERY atmospheric place, being, as it is, one of the most Holy places in Christendom. – I am not religious, but I understand the lore of many Religions, but this place definitely has a strong feel ( along with the Wailing Wall – and a few other places in the old city)
