Church of the Reformed Franciscans

Church of the Reformed Franciscans

We stumbled across this church while walking down a street to another building, but there was a Mass going on, so I had just one chance to take a picture. My husband held back the curtain at the entry, and I waited for a time that wasn't totally silent, and took my shot.

I just now finished work at 10:30 p.m. so may get a bit behind in commenting!

Nikon D800 ,Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED

Wonderful shot with such a great light as I know how little light there usually is. Such a beautiful altar area, almost can here them singing a hymn... *V*

Gorgeous interior - what is the significance of the blue trees?
