Happy Halloween!

Another gargoyle shot from Notre Dame in Paris. Possibly my best photo from all this vacation.  Shot at max telephoto without a tripod, thanks to the great low-light capabilities of my new Sony a65 camera!  The only retouching I did was to crop the photo, slightly adjust the contrast on the moon’s face, and remove some color fringing. And add the discreet copyright notice on the top ledge.

    Nice shot, FG, and a great gargoyle series, they always make me smile. When my son was small he said he didn’t like cathedrals because the “argyles” were too scary. Actually I’ve seen some pretty scary argyles myself.
