Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

Staircase, St. Stephen's Basilica, Budapest

Taken in Budapest at St Stephen’s Basilica, my shot for this week’s photo challenge gives the illusion of a staircase winding on to infinity. It’s not quite that long, but certainly feels like it’s never-ending when you’re half way up! The basilica itself is an incredible building and a must-see in Budapest. The circular viewing station around the outside of its cupola gives you a great bird’s-eye view of this fantastic Eastern European city.

I was tempted to change this image to black and white, but I love the orange glow that seems to get stronger as you wind down the staircase moving from natural to artificial light. It almost looks like you’re getting closer and closer to the earth’s core as you follow it to its end.

    Fantastic my friend, fantastic! πŸ˜€
    Somehow it reminds me of The Lord Of the Rings, when they are deep in the mines of Moria… i think it’s because of the that orange glow at the end of the stairs… or maybe I’m going crazy for no reason! Anyway, awesome photo! πŸ™‚

      Thanks Diogo! I don’t know much about Lord of the Rings, but I’m glad you liked the shot πŸ™‚ It does have a mystical feel about it. Maybe I should re-watch the films sometime!
