Air Force Academy Chapel

If you were wondering what Saturday's photo was, it's the Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel, one of the most recognizable buildings in Colorado when fully shown.
Here's a view looking up the steps.
I liked the regularity of the lines in this shot looking up the side with an ultra-wide-angle lens.
Here's another shot of the famous roofline.
And finally, I liked the pattern of shadows the spires were casting on the plaza in the early-morning sunlight.
This post is for Tina's PicStory theme of C (Cadet Chapel), and for Our World Tuesday. Next week we'll go inside the chapel.

  12. I was at first glance reminded of Tromso cathedral in Northern Norway.
    It has very Scandinavian lines in its design. I love it.

  18. It is a lovely structure - many years ago on my way to Denver, I could only do a quick drive through, so couldn't do this building the justice you have. It is a stunner, the angles and peaks a sort of modernist view that mimics the real mountains in the distance. A great view!
