If this nasty virus of 2 weeks would go away... Monday would be the start of a lovely week. I'm hopeful. ... The colours add nicely to the column. Have a good week Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Ohhhhh. So sorry about the nasties for you at this time of the year, Jacquelyn. Get well soon!
that is soooo pretty, i love stained glass, i think i showed you the lamp i made...
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Elaine. You've shown me your lamp. Stained glass is so beautiful, especially when the Sun hits it just right!

Nicely observed, Ginnie.

[I think you may be straining the capabilities of your camera in these difficult conditions.]
Ginnie Hart: My camera was in heaven that day, Ray. Now, maybe my manipulation tools leave something to be desired???
this is a magnificent image of the colours from the prisms Ginnie...
we have crystals all around out sunroom... and they light up our day....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: The joys of sun-playing, Peter. We are so lucky to see it happen.
Those prisms are so beautiful! Great find!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Elizabeth.
So beautiful and mystical Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: That's how I feel about prisms, too, Richard. Thank you.

I can imagine you, searching for just this sort to thing in the Basilica - well done, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You know me well, dear Lisl. Sometimes it finds me, when I'm least expecting it, which is part of the wonder of it all.

An effect only usually found in churches Ginnie - very nice
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chris. On many occasions Astrid and I have been in a church at just the right time for the special effects. We are always in awe when it happens!
Jolis détails de cette colonne.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martine.

I remember that wonderful light that the stained glass gave.
Love your point of focus. Beautiful shot, wonderful memory.
Ginnie Hart: We were so lucky that moment in time, MLMA. It happens often, now that I think about it. smile Thank you.

Oh, an excellent treatment to show this capital. I'm looking forward to tomorrow, too. Yesterday Tecklenburg was overcrowded, the closed huts will be still there tomorrow, for next weekend an Adventsmarket will be taking place.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. Tomorrow we will have some "peace and quiet" compared to the crowded weekend. It'll be wonderful.

Always a thrill to be there at the right time as these things are fleeting. Lovely capture Ginnie

I like the lighting very much; the prisms have done a good job.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Alan. Prisms like this are magical.
Terrific image Ginnie, so fortunate to be there for that lighting.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. This is when one feels "blessed."
very creative, Ginnie. i have seen a lot of stained glass work but this is the first image of the filtered light falling on any object
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. It surprises me how many times Astrid and I just happen to be there at the right moment!
Well spotted, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Tom.

Lovely, colourful reflections smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Cherry.
The colours really add some beauty to the already beautiful stone.
Ginnie Hart: That's what I thought, too, Michael. Thank you.
Simply beautiful! Love stained-glass prisms!
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Robin, and I'm surprised how many times we get to see them in churches we visit!
