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

  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!

  12. yeah, skip the close-up, then. :)

  13. 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...

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

  15. @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!

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

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

  21. @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.

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

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