An Organ Loft Window

My two posts from last week about Christ Church Cathedral made me remember this window shining over the church's organ loft that I have shown before. It's as much of the window as can be photographed from close up, unless one wants to take a header over the balcony edge.


  1. That is one stunning window, most of the ogan loft ons I come across are hidden from view

  2. It's really beautiful window. There has been a lot of work to make it.
    Have a nice day.

  3. It looks HUGE and very pretty!

  4. Two adjectives qualify to it : Big and beautiful.


  5. I understand the frustration. And I count myself fortunate for having not gone over the rail a few times. :-)

  6. Olá William
    fantástico vitral! Cores vibrantes e alegres. Gostei
    Um abraço

  7. Hi William!! Wow, this is an incredible photo...

  8. That is gorgeous! And please don't take a header. You've had enough problems with your leg and the world needs you!

  9. @Linda: thanks!

    @Cloudia: thank you.

    @Bill: fortunately access to this one was possible, at least on the day I took it.

    @Orvokki: it's really a work of art.

    @Gunn: it certainly is big.

    @Tomas: thanks!

    @Mo: thank you!

    @Revrunner: it might be easy to do so, if you're so wrapped up in getting the shot that you're not noticing how far you're backing up.

    @Gracita: thank you!

    @OE: thank you!

    @Lowell: I do try to be careful, but every once in awhile...

    @Karl: thanks!

  10. Love it! Absolutely beautiful William.

  11. This will have to do. We don't want you falling over the edge. :-) Beautiful glass!

  12. I always imagine the wonder these windows inspired in folks of long ago....the burst of color, the meaning the portrayals had for them. I guess it is still true, but times were much bleaker then, life was even harder...I ramble...

  13. Lovely, and you keep reminding me that I haven't posted the stained glass windows that I shot yet.

  14. @Luis: I compared it back to my post from the ninth of January- the window can be seen from the outside of the church in the second shot. It gives you more of a sense of the size.

    @Sharon: that just wouldn't do!

    @Tex: well, skip stepping back one more step, anyway!

    @Pat: for us, being on this side of the Atlantic, the churches might tend to be a century and a half or two centuries old... very different from when the great Gothic cathedrals were being built in Europe centuries earlier. I'd love to see some of those.

    @Judy: I look forward to seeing yours!

    @VP: thanks!

  15. It is pretty ! Nice shot ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  16. It's lovely. Stained glass is such an art.

  17. You've been injured once already, that's enough!

    This is one of my favourites ever! Frame it!

  18. Beautiful, intricate window...and I'll be happy not seeing every square inch of it if you'll agree to stay safe photographing it!

  19. A beautiful working of colour patterns in this impressive window.

  20. @Tamago: that appears to be the consensus.

    @Pamela: I certainly think so.

    @Jen: thanks!

    @Country Gal: you're welcome.

    @Hilary: it certainly is.

    @Marleen: so did I.

    @RedPat: yes it is.

    @Ciel: I could have easily used this one as one of my photos of the year!

    @Hamilton: it is huge.

    @Whisk: that seems to be the common opinion today.

    @Kay: I would be best off doing so!

    @Gemma: the designer worked wonders.

  21. The perfect reason to buy yourself a new camera with a wide angle lens !

  22. Stained glass windows in sacred places are divine on so many levels. Great capture!

  23. It is lovely and I'm glad you didn't try to get closer!

  24. This is a spectacular stained glass work. Yes, be careful in those balconies.

  25. Magnificent, absolutely magnificent!!

  26. P.S. Glad you didn't choose to take a header!!!!

  27. @Gerald: thanks!

    @Marianne: it is.

    @Stuart: oh, yes!

    @Janis: thank you!

    @Lois: thank you.

    @Red: you're at the edge before you realize it!

    @Kittie: thank you!

    @Jennifer: it's one of the best stained glass windows I've ever seen.

  28. I wonder how long it took to make that one.

  29. Wow, you really did this gorgeous window justice with your photo William.

  30. This is a particularly beautiful modern stained glass window, William.

  31. Lovely! I suppose they wouldn't allow a drone in there!

  32. One of the prettiest windows I've ever seen.

  33. There is something in the stained glass windows, causing reverie and intentness. Even if there is a stained glass window in the image.

  34. @Randy: it would have taken a long time.

    @Denise: thanks!

    @Jack: I think so!

    @Linda: definitely not!

    @Rambling: indeed.

    @Mari: it does.

    @Lauren: I agree.

    @EG: it is a beauty.

    @Mariusz: true!
