The Cathedral of the Good Shepard, San Sebastian, Spain

This neo gothic cathedral stands at the end of a decently busy street and is a darkly beautiful building. The architecture is so intricate and detailed all over the spires and roofline. It’s a photographical dream of a building.

It was built in 1880 and completed in 1897. Preservation of churches and cathedrals in Spain is of high importance, so it looks like it was built nothing more than 50 years ago!

Simple adjustment of lighting in this one, adding an omni to create a darker mood of needed deliverance and salvation.
