Theme day: best photo of the year

Among several night photos I choose this one I took last January. This is The Torino Cathedral taken in foggy early morning. In its crypt there is what people call "The Holy Shroud". Click HERE to be direct to original post. Another time: Happy New Year to everyone.

Fra centinaia di fotografie notturne scelgo questa che scattai lo scorso Gennaio. Questo è il Duomo di Torino fotografato di prima mattina con la nebbia. Nella sua cripta è conservata la Sacra Sindone. Cliccate QUI per essere diretti al post originale. Ancora una volta: Buon Anno a tutti.

Today, like every first of the month, is a City Daily Photo theme day. 118 City Daily Photo bloggers have also posted their best photo of the year. Please pay them a visit (but keep in mind that due to time differences all photos don't show at the same time).

I remember this from when you first posted it - loved it then and it is a great choice for photo of the year.

I'm sorry you registered just a little too late to be included on my list of theme participents [sorted into the date they started their blogs]

Happy new year.

Vi invidio alla follia: sono mesi che con il mio blog 'cittadino' http://perugiablog.blogspot.com/ sto cercando persone che scrivano su altri Blog cittadini ed ecco qui Voi, che a quanto pare lo fate da anni... non è giusto!! Comunque, se vuoi io cerco sempre persone per scambiare i reciproci links.
