Immaculate Conception Church (Celina Ohio) II

Relief on white alter with gold leaf of the resurrected Lamb of God.After spending most of the day in Hamilton Ohio, hiking and taking pictures in Pyramid Park, I decided to take the scenic route back home via State Route 127. I wanted to revisit the Immaculate Conception Church in Celina and hopefully get some inside shots. It's one of the few of "The Land of the Cross Tipped Churches" that had never been inside. All I can say is it is beautiful and large. It will take several visits and many post to properly cover this church. Pictured here is a close of of one of the carvings on the main altar with the Lamb of God. (Click Read More to Continue)

Main white alter with gold leaf.

I plan on doing a post just featuring the altar pictured here for now this teaser will have to do.

Above on the ceiling is this beautiful mural of the Immaculate Conception. It is very large and covers the entire domed ceiling. Pictured here is just a part of it.

My artistic shot from this visit came from looking up. I saw the round stained glass window and chandelier and new it would be a pretty cool shot. The trick was focusing on the glass and not the chandelier. It also took a few tries to get everything lined up.

That's all until the next time.
