Hiya François - This is a bit of an experiment... It is an HDR shot but combined with a B&W version... it has the effect of softening the colours... also, this is the east window of the Church so there is no sunlight going through the glass....

Perhaps I should try to get here in the morning!



(PS Thanks for the like)

Lovely Steve


Do you live close to where Kate Middleton is from ?? if so nice part of the country...Cheers Marion

Hiya Marion! Ooh it's been a long time since someone called me "lovely Steve" ! Ah... perhaps you meant the photograph :-(

As for where Kate Middleton hales from I think it is in Yorkshire somewhere.. We live in Suffolk - a county considerably flatter than Yorkshire and to the south and east... Checkout Bury St. Edmunds on Wiki and that will give you an idea.

Yorkshire is beautiful. I have been there a number of times and loved every minute of it... while Suffolk may be relatively flat, it has charms of its own...

I watched them tie the knot today... lovely stuff - I wish them well.

Thanks for the like :-)

Hiya SuperSteve!

What an excellent treatment! It gives such a peaceful feeling to the whole scene, just as it should! I like it very much!!

OH!! They got hitched, did they? I hadn't noticed.. it's not like it's on every single channel here in Canada, or anything ;D LOLOL! She's much too pretty for him, but that's been said before... :))) I wish them a "Happily Ever After"!

Smiles, GG:)))

Hiya Karin - The time to catch this window at its best is in the morning but the Church is still locked when I go past... The quality of the window however, makes a special trip worthwhile...

All that said, I am chuffed you liked it :-) Thanks, as always, for stopping by..



Hiya GG!! Yes, oh yes, they did get hitched... I switched off my telly and pulled the plug but the coverage still appeared....

"She's much too pretty for him"??? Well, leaving the blatant sexsim of the comment aside for a mo' I think the BBC think they are both a little odd... After the wedding, they broadcast Shrek of all things.. Are they trying to tell us something? Perhaps the BEEB (BBC) reckon William is an Ogre and Kate is a closet ogre....

To be fair, I watched it and loved the whole thing. I hope their time together is a little less fraught than the rest of Liz's kids...

Ah!! This photo! Chuffed you liked this... although it is worth trying to get there in the morning... I should imagine the widow would be all but on fire with the sun lighting up the glass...

I hope you are having a wizard weekend..

This looks so soft and inviting...pulls you right in! Like!

Hi there Joy - Pakenham is a lovely village not far from where we live. The church is quite a grand affair - owing some of its features to the patrimony of past landowners...

The West window is glorious... and the soft light passing through lit the west end with a lovely light...

Glad you enjoyed it.. and thanks for the like
