December Photo a Day Challenge: Joyous


December 4th – So, obviously I didn’t actually take this picture today. Outside it is grey, pouring rain, and crazy windy. I can hear it rattling my window. So, instead of braving the horrible weather, I decided to sit next to the cosy wood stove and use one of my older shots. This was taken in Ragusa Ibla in Sicily last summer. It is St. George’s Cathedral, or Duomo San Giorgio. It was a remarkable day – hot and sunny. It was so quiet in the piazza in front of the cathedral – most Sicilians go home to rest in the midday. I pointed my camera up and caught the single pigeon flying past the cathedral. Maybe rapturous would be a better word.
