Panoramic view of Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel

I used my iPhone 4 and AutoStitch app to create this panoramic view of the chapel of Our Lady of Guadalupe inside of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., last March. If you’re in the nation’s capital and have never been to the basilica, located on The Catholic University of America campus, make a point to stop in for a visit and even attend Mass. It is worth the visit.

The chapel walls are inscribed with the words, “Who is she who comes forth like the rising dawn, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, like the rainbow gleaming amid luminous clouds, like the bloom of roses in the spring?” The altar inside the chapel depicts the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The walls are mosaic and on both sides show pilgrims coming to venerate her.

I stitched about seven or eight images to create the photo, which is about a 19 MB file. Click on the image to view a larger size.
