Greetings Alex, Alfredo and SarpBKS, Thanks for visiting the Academy Chapel and commenting.

Alex and Alfredo - my sincerest apologies for not responding. I don't know how I missed visiting and thanking you. I feel badly. Belatedly, I am glad you liked the Chapel.

SarpBKS - all the Garden of the Gods and Chapel shots were done with the 17-85mm lens. It works very well for setting composition. I have noticed the picture will have more content than what you see in the view finder.

Thanks all for visiting.

Greetings Jeromelaforet, Thanks for visiting and commenting. The chapel at the Air Force Academy is unique in the world. Almost every design feature is inspired by aircraft design and function. I am glad you like it.

Greetings Andre and Rafael, Thanks for visiting and the wonderful comments. Visiting the Air Force Cadet Chapel is a moving experience. It is so beautiful inside and out. To hear the pipe organ play is inspirational. Thanks again.
