Play of light

by Helen Hooker August. 05, 2014 4894 views

In between editing Summer School photos I popped out this afternoon to take some photos at Broxted Church. I love photographing churches and finding interesting details in their architecture. However, perhaps the thing I love most about churches is the way the light creates fascinating effects as it falls through the stained glass windows and onto the interior. St. Mary's at Broxted is notable for two of its stained glass windows - the ‘Hostage’ and ‘Freedom’ windows, which commemorate the ordeal suffered by local man John McCarthy and his fellow hostages in Beirut back in the 1980s. The ‘Freedom’ window in particular is glorious, with its cool shades of blue.

The light in the first two is, indeed, perfect for these shots, but the focus in the last two is what makes them so special.

Cathedrals...one of my favorite kinds of architecture. You captured it perfectly. That multitude of blue shades- outstanding.
