Via this fantastic site with beautiful, high-level detail photos of medieval stained glass from major cathedrals of Europe, by Dr. Stuart Whatling.
Today was a very brisk autumn day here and I’ve been thinking of these all day. They somehow elegantly catch today’s mood absolutely: the colours, the blueness of the sky, the poignant out-of-doors ambience. For a change I’ll excuse myself for reblogging my own stuff and just enjoy this again.
It’s that time of year, again.
