Basilica Papale di San Pietro in Vaticano

Skylight shadows, St. Peter's Basilica
Rome, Italy

All the photos I took in St. Peter's are dark and grainy.  Just possibly because no photo could do it justice.  It is jaw-dropping-ly beautiful.  There is artwork everywhere...the walls, ceilings and floors.

The skylights were my favorite.
