In Saint Stephen’s Basilica, Budapest, Hungary, these circular stone stairs wrap around a a supporting column, throwing off a golden glow from light reflecting from the stone

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    glad you liked this one. It was a rather tight spot to get this shot, but worth the twisting

    Superb shot. I know how difficult it is to get a good circular stairway shot. Mine are never how I hope they will be. You have everything in this picture; lovely shapes and great lighting and colour.

  • lezvee
    well, they aren’t always easy shots! This one was a very tight space, so I was literally hanging onto the main pillar with one hand and steadying and shooting with the other.
