King's College Chapel

Haven't posted in a while, but liked this photo enough to share :)

Here's a photo of King's College Chapel, in Cambridge, UK. It's the 2nd largest chapel in the world (after the Sistine Chapel). I learned yesterday that chapels are different from churches in that chapels are typically private, and churches are open to anyone.

This chapel also has the largest fan-vaulted ceilings of any building (which means it has no central support pillars). You can see the fans on the ceiling here. Additionally, it has the largest collection of Renaissance stained glass in the world (it was really pretty in person, and hard to capture with a camera!). The stained glass was removed in WW2 to prevent it from being bombed out, however, the folks who removed it forgot to number/label the pieces, so it was a bit of a trick to put it back together again.

Pier in San Clemente around Christmas a few years ago. These colors really existed - I actually had to tone down the saturation in this photo to make it look less fake.

Milky Way over Acadia National Park

I'm interning with the National Park Service this summer, and we just wrapped up a week of training in this gorgeous park in Maine. Pretty excited to head down to D.C. and get my park on. :o)
I took this photo last night after dinner - no tripod!

Antarctic Rainbow

You know it's an unusual sight when the ship's crew is out there with their cameras, too ...

Ohai there

This is a photo of an Antarctic Seal I took a few months ago when down there for a marathon - he was curious about what we were up to!

I've been a bit MIA these last few months ... my apologies. :o) I'll be making a slow resurgence ...
