La luce guida tra Santa Maria Maggiore e la Chiesa Nuova di Assisi
"The guiding light of Santa Maria Maggiore and the New Church of Assisi"...
(Psalms: 65:9) “Distant peoples stand in awe of your marvels; the places of morning and evening you make resound with joy.” Upon arrival early that day in Assisi, I began taking photos the second I parked at Hotel Giotto just inside the walls in the foothills of Assisi. Perhaps Saint Francis arranged the dramatically perfect skies and coordinated every encounter. Beginning at the Basilica of Saint Francis, every second of the climb to the top of the mountain and the fortress of Rocca Maggiore was highlighted time after time by a vision of something more mystical and spiritual than the last. Upon my final steps to the top at almost sunset, the clouds parted, and the low sun brightened as a slight mist of rain came down. The climb to the top was fraught with a multitude of very steep and exhaustive staircases, but the reward was always greater than the physical agony endured. This image was captured as I followed the radiant winding road illuminated by the evening glimmer of the descending sun.
