My last photo from interior series and last photo before my next long trip is from Einsiedeln Monastery Church, detail of nicely decorated monastery church ceiling.
Einsiedeln Benedictine Monastery is located the town of Einsiedeln in the Canton of Schwyz, Switzerland
The benedictine monastery and the baroque church of Einsiedeln are among the main tourist attractions of Switzerland.
Pilgrims have been visiting the monastery of Einsiedeln for over 1000 years. The monastery lies in the midst of a breathtaking landscape with a deep blue lake and jagged mountain tops. Today more and more nature lovers and culture-minded visitors are joining the pilgrims.
The monastery of Einsiedeln was built as a Baroque edifice with four inner courtyards in the 18th century. Before that time Romanesque and Gothic buildings defined the monastery, which was founded by the Benedictine monk Meinrad in the year 835. The Mercy Chapel (Gnadenkapelle), made of black marble, is located in the monastery's church, under a dome with frescoes. The famous Black Madonna dating to the 15th century is found in that chapel.
The monastery complex includes not only the living space for the monks but also a diocese school, ten workshops, a wine cellar for the monastery's own wine and stables for the monastery's own breed of horses.
By means of concerts, guided tours, and public masses, the Benedictine monks allow everyone to take part in their lives and discover what is probably Switzerland's most impressive monastery complex.

That is incredible detail, and to me the bright airy airy pastel colors are so unusual. Almost all churches in Ireland are quite dark, and even the decoration tends to be similar, golds and blues yes, but never these pinks and whites, a great idea to focus on this small area to draw our attention to the incredible detail. The little angel /cherub peeping of the bottom frame is quite creepy too, cool :)
All the best

First off, thank you much for the very kind compliment on my recent picture, sometimes I just get lucky. :)
Such exquisite detail and beauty that you show us with this image, I can only imagine the rest of the monastery is just as beautiful. When you have something like this, it's hard to resist going for the wide frame and trying to capture the entirety of the work...but I really like what you've done to concentrate on this section, which greatly aids in understanding the fine detailing and craftsmanship. There's interest from corner to corner, and a well balanced exposure to even see a bit beyond. The white balance appears to right on the mark too, all very natural and aesthetically pleasing. Take good care. All the best.
