Spires of Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

The Sagrada Familia is the reason that the city of Barcelona was such a draw to me photographically, I knew there was a lot more than just this massive Cathedral to photograph, but it was this church that caught my eye. Whilst sat on a bench at the western side (or Passion facade), I noticed branches from a nearby tree framing the top of one of the spires in this interesting way. The reason I was waiting was I had already got my daytime photos a day or two earlier, but had returned with my tripod for some night photography. After scouting my locations it was just a matter of waiting around. After seeing this interesting composition I used a shallow depth of field and long focal length to blur out the tree’s leaves and keep the Cathedral’s detail in sharp focus.
