    What a lovely shot of the chapel!

  2. Vincenzo says:

    Wow! Beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing Father!

  3. EDG says:

    I happened to see this last night on my way to the Stations at the Cathedral. St Augustine is a remarkably dark little town and you can see the stars very clearly in many parts of it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Venus that bright. Quite remarkable. Great photos!

    Saw this on the way back from Stations and Mass.
    Our Lord is quite the artist!

  5. Ann says:

    Amazing pictures!

    Wow! Thank you. I did not see it last night.

    Nice photos, Father! How did you get that first photo? What kind of lense did you use???

  9. John P says:

    Father, I love all those photographs, but I especially love the one of the chapel at night. That is such a peaceful scene. Thank you for sharing, Father

    I was on my way home from Stations, too, I live about 9 miles from our church…as soon as I saw it I thought, oh, I sure hope Fr. Z. is photographing this!! The scene was obscured a little by thin clouds, but there was no mistaking what was happening…it reminded me of the Turkish national flag…a crescent moon with a star.

    Thanks for the photos.

  11. Peter says:

    Nice photos. Father would you care to share the details of your technical setup – camera, lens (& telescope?).

    Ooooo… Cheshire cat moon!

  13. I used a Canon 20D and a Canon 75-300 zoom set up on a tripod which a reader here sent me through my amazon wish list as well as a shutter trip cord sent by another reader.

  14. Peter says:

    Thanks Father, impressive results and nice kit :-) I love your bird shots too.

  15. irishgirl says:

    I saw that from my window as well!

    What beautiful photos, Fr. Z!

    ‘Cheshire cat moon’ ? Perhaps….but I prefer to call it an ‘Immaculate Conception moon’!

    ‘The Heavens are telling the glory of God….’
