The ceiling fresco above the grand staircase (three stories high) in the Imperial Wing of Gottweig Abbey was completed in 1739 by Austrian artist Paul Troger.
To make this photo, I stitched together six photos as I panned from the staircase’s first flight to the ceiling directly overhead. The shot looking straight up was the most difficult to hold steady, a tripod would have been a big help.
I left the person on the second flight in the photo to provide some scale to the image.
