Nice frame for nice clouds. I like this one too.

Agree with Luis... greatly framed. Beautiful building!

Wow! I can't imagine how beautiful the glass must have been.

Many thanks, Luis and Rafael from long ago, and Rich and Annick now. And Annick, rest well. Cheers, Marilyn

Glad you saw some sunshine Marilyn. This shot frames the storm clouds beautifully. Who needs stained glass when you have such a tremendous view...A.S.

Anita, a week ago I gave (for the second time) a photo presentation that I called "Sacred Spaces." I didn't do a lot of narration, but mostly let the pictures speak for themselves. But when I came to this one, I said just what you did about stained glass! Marilyn

Thank you, Epi. It is a beautiful place that we just happened to learn about when we were nearby. Greetings, Marilyn

I remember this one. Did you use a similar one in b&w later? nik

Marilyn Whiteley on March 13, 2010

Thanks, damilano, for your visit.

Yes, nik, the b&w is in the same abbey church, facing the other direction. Since it was against the sun, the colour was very poor, but I discovered that "it worked" in monochrome. Marilyn
