Taken within the Cloister of Paradise at the Cathedral of Amalfi, Italy.

The cloister was the ancient cemetery for the noblemen of Amalfi, built between 1266 and 1268. Here one can enjoy the charm of the characteristic interlaced arches, supported by 120 slender columns in the Moorish style. The greenery of the small Mediterranean garden at the centre of the cloister filters through the pure white row of columns. This shot from the middle of the northern side of the cloister affords a glimpsed view of Amalfi Cathedralís characteristic bell tower (1180-1276). It is decorated in the Moorish style with polychrome maiolica or majolica tiles.

The Cloister of Paradise is a very small but beautifully peaceful and tranquil place, but I donít think any of my photos truly captured its special genius loci (spirit of place).

Thanks for all the C&Cs on my last upload taken at 33,000ft!

Best wishes,
Philip

Good use of the arch for framing, Philip, and you've kept detail and light in the arch so it doesn't take over tonally.
