I found this profile shot and just had to change it so I could see more detail.  It was either taken in the very early morning or just before the sunset looking up at this wonderful piece of architecture.  It is a picture of a church in Mainz, Germany according to (efo151), Fred. 

Well, I had to find out a little more about this church and found out that it is the Mainz Cathedral and was begun over a thousand years ago.   Early construction was Romanesque but many alterations, renovations, and additions have been done so there is a hint of lots of styles.  It damaged during World War II and more reconstruction has continued.  Today, although continually being worked on this wonderful structure has celebrated more than a thousand years of continual use.
