Behind the Garden Gate, Laon, France

BEHIND THE GARDEN GATE, LAON, FRANCE:  Another favourite shot from Laon, France in the northern Champagne region.  Around the great Gothic cathedral are many other old stone buildings.  Opposite the western façade of the cathedral is a narrow passage that emerges in a pretty street lined with shops and residences.  Walking through the passage, I was attracted to light poking through the slats of a fence and garden gate.  This photo was taken while reaching over the gate to take the shot, not knowing what I would get.  The green moss between the cobblestones glows in the afternoon light.  What a peaceful, quiet place.     Shot handheld with a Nikon D40X, 18-200 AF-S DX lens at 18mm. f8, 1/50 second, ISO 1600.
