The San Juan Bautista Mission is the largest of the 21 California Spanish Missions. It was founded in 1797.
I live about 8 miles from this beautiful church, and I have always enjoyed photographing it. Every summer and early fall, the Big Dipper can be seen over the Mission. On this particular night I was able to catch a wonderful shot of the Big Dipper, along with the warm violet glow of lights in the background. If you ever have a chance, please take some time to visit one of the 21 missions that are scattered along the California Coast. You will be amazed at the beauty and architecture of these wonderful pieces of history.
