Panorama of the inside of La Madeleine church. The panorama shows the dramatic columns that surround the massive pulpit, high roofs and the gilded decorations around the high altar. The church was not very busy, it being early in the day, and the long exposures used to take the pictures meant that moving people were not captured by the camera. The panorama opens facing the High Altar.
