Saint Quiriace Church, Provins, Paris

Provins was a pleasant experience. The weather that day was absolutely fantastic and the shot below is one of the sights I took as we did the walking tour. Enchanting little town, I was surprised not to find a mention of this place in Lonely Planet in spite of it being a UNESCO World Heritage site.


Below is the shot of Saint Quiriace church from Caesar’s tower. It was constructed in the 17th century. Visible from miles away, the church is lit every evening at dusk and is believed to be a magnificent sight. Pity I couldn't stay back that long to see it myself.


I zoomed into the dome with my 18-200mm lens.
