This is a great place to visit, especially if you are a devout Catholic. It is a very imposing structure once you get up close to it. I took this picture with my 35mm 1.8G lens on my D80. If i remember, i had to stand on the other side of the street to get this. Everytime i go back, i am never at a lose for photo ops. Once you go inside, it is a great place to practice your low light photography, but bring a wide angle lens and a tripod would be a good idea as well. In the winter time, this place is lite up at night and with the snow all around, it makes for a great night shot.
