The photographer: Bill Obernesser of Sacramento
Behind the lens: This monastery, Saint-Martin-du-Canigou, completed in 1009, is in the Pyrenees of southern France, very near the Spanish border. A 45-minute uphill hike from your car gets you there. A small community of monks occupies the monastery and the monks give guided tours. A short path leads to a hilltop platform above the monastery, from which this photo was taken.
