Light from Within.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your votes, fun comments and witticism's on my 'Book for Mother's Day' image. I had great fun reading them. Smile

Today, stained glass windows in Rochester Cathedral where the sun is shining through into the cathedral from the far side and out through the near side. And if they look rather similar to an upload by my smashing friend, Dave (mistere) that's because i was standing next to him when he took them. SmileWink And thanks Dave for pointing out this photo opportunity to me.👍

All the best to all,

An interesting set, John, and a different approach for you thanks to Dave. Quality light! My preference is for V1, a different approach for me as I usually go for details . . . . .

People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

p.s. a fine set and v.1 will be my choice too

Thanks for that great quote, Leo.

And the reason that I didn't lead with V1, is because it has more impact after viewing the chosen lead image. Smile (IMHO) Wink

Some glowing tributes already, John! The first version is my preference as well. One day I'll get down to Rochester!

A fine set here John, facinating how the sun was placed to take these, most unusual and beautiful.

Good times,
Dave 🕊

Stained glass is never easy to capture but I have enjoyed seeing your set there from Rochester Cathedral, John.

My thought - before reading your title - was 'the inner light'.
