Artist's description:

I was outside of the Mosta Dome Church, on the front, at sunrise when I took this photo. I was there to take photos of the interior of the church after the Sunday mass had finished, and as I was entering the church I noticed how the light of the sun was lighting the pillars and also the pattern of all the pillars, one by one. Here is some information about the church, and about why it's popular for tourists: The Parish Church of the Assumption, commonly known as the Rotunda of Mosta or the Mosta Dome, is a Roman Catholic parish church in Mosta, Malta, dedicated to the Assumption of Mary. It was built between 1833 and the 1860s to neoclassical designs of Giorgio Grognet de Vassé, on the site of an earlier Renaissance church which had been built in around 1614 to designs of Tommaso Dingli.

The design of the present church is based on the Pantheon in Rome, and it is said to have the third largest unsupported dome in the world. The church narrowly avoided destruction during World War II, since on 9 April 1942 a German aerial bomb pierced the dome and fell into the church during mass but failed to explode. This event was interpreted by the Maltese as a miracle.
