by Don Schwager

This scene was photographed in the bright mid-day sun on the rooftop of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. I enhanced the colors and texture to reveal the inner radiance and beauty of this holy place, revered by many Christians as the place where Christ died and rose to new life from the tomb on the third day - just as he had prophesied.
