On Wednesday I posted an image of the front exterior of the mission. Here’s a look at the inside….
This was a bracketed exposure shot handheld. It was quite dark inside so I cranked up the ISO to 3200. I would have liked to have had the whole place to myself but that was not to be. I guess I could have cloned the people out of the picture but decided to keep them in.

This is the Mission San Carlos Borroméo del río Carmelo or as it’s better known, The Carmel Mission. The mission was first established in Carmel in 1771. The Carmel Mission is considered to be the most authentically restored Franciscan mission. It’s courtyard and gardens are just beautiful and even with lots of people roaming around was very peaceful and serene. This is the front courtyard and facade of the chapel.

There’s a little bakery in Carmel called appropriately The Carmel Bakery and Coffee Co., that my husband and I just fell in love with. We headed there every morning for breakfast (they make a mean breakfast burrito) and their baked goods are just out of this world. If you find yourself in Carmel head over there.
