Last week I was in Barcelona, Spain on business and although I had a miserable head cold, I did have tickets to visit Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s unfinished masterwork. I forced myself out with camera and gear in tow and grabbed a bunch of shots. Two of them are here … and I need to go back and work on some of the others when I get more time.
While construction of Sagrada Familia began in 1882 under a different architect, Gaudi became involved with Sagrada Familia in 1883 through his death in 1926. At the time of his death, the project was only 25% completed. A few wars, and other issues have caused delays, and with luck the entire project may be completed in my lifetime.
The photos above were taken with my Nikon D610 and a Sigma 15mm fish-eye lens. Each image is created from three bracketed exposures and merged into a single image and hand ‘painted’ using AuroraHDR and On1 Photo Raw.
I wish I wasn’t sick so I would have had more patience and time … and really wish it was sunny outside for more light play with the windows. At least I know I will be back in October 🙂
