Walking the streets of Florence, turning the corner and getting my first glimpse of Brunelleschi's Dome is something that I will never forget! Breath-taking!

This is the Duomo,Santa Maria del Fiore; the cathedral is Europe's fourth largest church.And to this day it remains the city's tallest building.

The Dome was built without the use of any scaffolding.

Not the easiest shot in which to get all the vertical lines quite right, so I decided to concentrate on the Domes.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Jean.

I love the architecture, the angle shows so much perspective. So many domes have been constructed without scaffolding, makes you wonder how. So much ornate work has gone into this.

The verticals are a distraction still though, i havce done a ws using distortion in photoshop.

Best wishes for 2013.

stv ;o))
