Shielded Cross

By lifesnapper  
Hi all, and thank you very much all who voted and left kind comments on my 'Canterbury Tale'.
Today just one image instead of 24 Smile and inside the Cathedral rather that outside.
The Cross is about 10ft from the ground, and the Stain Glass Window in the Bg, about 25ft from the ground.
Hope you like it as much as I do, and I've loads more Canterbury shots to share with you soon.

All the best to all,

John Smile

I like the detail of the cross, John, and the symmetry you have achieved against the diffused stained glass window, very attractive.

I feel you are short changing us today, John: only one 'photie' !!!!!!!
But a very nice one it is, these small local features often making every bit as much a statement as the bigger picture.

Just one shot to concentrate the mind, eh?
Very well balanced indeed, as symmetrical as is possible. The colour contrast front to back is especially good, the yellow in the central window linking the two planes together.
