Staircase at Melk by Peter Doré


Small (23.2" x 15.5")

Available to buy on…

One of the staircases in Abbey Melk, , a Benedictine Abbey on the Danube River in Lower Austria. A spiral not unlike a natural shell taken looking up into the roof. The undersides of the staircase are beautifully decorated. Taken with Canon 50D, ISO1000 due to the low light available, and Canon 16-35 F2.8L Lens. No flash used to help keep these original golden tones intact.

The older I get the more I love to take pictures. I should have done this all my life!

I love to see your pictures. Your talent inspires me!
