This one is Fabulous Marilyn light trought the stained glass is very fine, great pic. It's not the same Fun....
Many thanks, Jean. It's a marvelous place, but I found it hard to photograph. This was my most successful.
Hi Marilyn, it´s a very modern cathedral, I suppose.
Thanks for your comments.
Yes, very modern, but connected to the little that remains of the old one that was destroyed in the war. The connection makes the new one more interesting and beautiful.
This one is fantastic, the Sunlight besides the vitrail...makes succh a great effect.
Thanks, Paul. I'm glad to find someone who shares my love of this window. I had the frustrating experience of visiting the cathedral the summer before it was open. We were able to visit the ground floor level (now not open to the public) where we saw the lower extension of the long narrow side windows, but the sanctuary was not yet open. I had to wait a long time before I was finally able to see the "real thing," in 2005. Then it was even beyond my expectations!
The Baptistry Window is by John Piper, I think. Easily the best thing about Coventry.
2989andyd, I'm sorry I missed your comment. I certainly find the Baptistry Window a high point.
