Golden Stairway

I love how the lighting casts a rich golden glow throughout this spiral staircase leading to the viewing area on top of the Arc de Triomphe. The varying intensity of light and a great perspective create a strong sense of height and depth for anyone viewing this superb picture. A spiral staircase is a spiral staircase, but this photographer has captured it at an ideal angle (slightly off centre) resulting in a very pleasing symmetry. This picture stirred my imagination, which isn’t always easy. I quickly thought of many different captions, but only get to use one. Oh well!. Hope you don’t get too dizzy looking down those stairs.
