The Iconic Spires of the Cathedral of St John the Baptist getting hit with the warm morning light. My wife and I were fortunate to spend a few days in Savannah earlier this month, specifically to shoot a few things for the Historic Hamilton Turner Inn located on Lafayette Square, the same location as this Savannah Icon. The Cathedral of St John the Baptist is a French Gothic designed Cathedral that was dedicated in April, 1876. The brick structure lacked spires which were not added until 1896 when it also received a coating of stucco and whitewash.

The Spires are rarely seen from this vantage point, I was able to go into the Cupola of the Hamilton Turner Inn and gain access to the roof overlooking the Cathedral for this vantage point of the Spires.

Thanks for looking!
