Vienna 2006

St. Stephen's Cathedral

The centerpiece of the downtown area, St. Stephen's is a massive gothic structure from the early 1500s (built on the site of a church some 400 years older). The intricate carving over the eaves cast long shadows over the rooftiles as the sun goes down. 
a higher-res version of this was my computer desktop for a long time

The church is a focal point for tourists and locals, and provides a fine meeting point for all those interested in taking a carriage ride around town.
