Photographer's Note

Rising up from the parched countryside of Castilla-La Mancha, Cuenca is a well-preserved medieval town perched above the deep gorges of Jùcar and Huecar.

The Cathedral is built on the site of a mosque and is a combination of many architectural influence, like his façade, a 16th-century Gothic experimentation, while the interior reveals a early 13th-century nave, a 15th-century apse and a 20th-century restoration.

I stayed there for about an hour and took over 50 photos of the same tripod view, and only this one stand out from the others, because of the glowing effect from the church. When you shoot at the »Blue Hour», there’s only one very short moment where the balance between natural and artificial create interesting effect.

In this case, there was still just enough light in the sky, so the artificial light projected on the façade is almost imperceptible. The whole scene almost feel like it as been shot on daylight, but this is a 30 second exposure.
