Saint Jean chapel illuminated at night

I stopped last night in front of this little chapel. The sky seemed to be black but as usual, i was surprised to see the light a one minute long exposure could reveal.

Of course if one minute was perfect for the sky, it was also really too long for the snow ...
So i did a bunch of exposures from 2 to 60 seconds. Once in the "darkroom" i choose 4 and processed them with Photomatix.

Note : There is a road just near and the people driving there last night seemed surprised to see a crazy man with a tripod and a camera standing out in the cold :)

Beautiful picture! I would do the same--stand out in the cold, to get a wonderful night photo such as this. It's worth it:)

That's a very dream-like image, with the red in the sky and the strange lighting on the chapel. Did you use the lights from your auto:), or was it some light source that was already there? Either way, a very interesting and different effect.

Thank's all for your nice comments.

@Mark : The lights were some permanent huge spot lights lighting the chapel almost every night.
