The Bells of Sant'Agnese, Piazza Navona - Rome
After my dusk photo shoot at St. Peter's Basilica, I arrived at Piazza Navona with just a hint of light left in the sky. I knew a very long exposure would be necessary and set the tripod up just inches from the ground. I liked the different vantage point and the way the wide angle lens created a sense of perspective distortion. Since it was so dark, autofocus was not cooperating. When this happens, I always fall back on the terrific Live View feature and switch to manual focus.
Just as I was capturing this frame, a magnificent sound rang out through the night sky. It was the bells of Sant'Agnese, and they continued for several minutes, enough time for me to record it with my iPhone.
