In the heart of Reims, rising above the cities rooftops, Notre-Dame de Reims is one of Europe’s most important Gothic buildings. This beautiful 13th century cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage site and it most have been photographed a million times. It is always refreshing to see something a little different which is why we love this unusual photograph by Stephen Shankland taken inside the cathedral. The out of focus stained glass window creates a lovely backdrop to these candles. You can see more photographs from Reims Cathedral by Stephen on Flickr.
