St. Mary Basilica

Tue Aug 8, 2017

This is the beautiful St. Mary Basilica in downtown Natchez, a church that towers above the town and was actually hard to get in to a single shot with my 19mm Sigma lens. Due to that I'm sure it will get a terrible crop when I post it to Instagram (thank you, Instagram). Anywho, the sky was so cooperative on this day, everywhere we went, even though there were some off and on summer showers. I couldn't have asked for better lighting. That alwasy worries me a bit when I go out of town to take photos, because you never know exactly what the weather will be like, or even what the sky will look like.

We stayed in a great place there called Starling's Rest, a nice B&B in an old home that was right off of the downtown business district and just down the street from the Natchez Cemetery, so it made it very convenient for us to see the town for a bit and then go back to our room for a bit to rest. I highly recommend a visit to Natchez and the surrounding area.

I spent the weekend in Natchez with my wife for a little anniversary getaway. Neither of us had ever been to Natchez and boht of us wanted to go visit and get some photos while we were there. I was able to check 4 more Mississippi counties off of my list of counties that I have photographs from. Adams, Jefferson, Claiborne and Warren. We had a great time in Natchez, eating local foods, visiting local shops and even staying in a lovely bed & breakfast a block from downtown and the river. We met locals that gave us some other places to visit and were very hospitable. It was such a productive trip and we enjoyed every minute of it.

This photo is from our first night there, wandering around the city, having just eaten at Rolling River Bistro (very good!). We found this view and stayed here for a while capturing the sunset and just taking it all in. The clouds had been rolling in for a while, leaving this thin strip of orange glow as the sun set over the horizon.
