The Baptistry Window

Coventry Cathedral
195 Panels of Stained Glass


In the photo below you can get an idea of the size of this window if you focus in on the
door (left) and reception desk (right).  This is one very large collection of stained glass panels.


I will have to come back and try photographing
this window again.  Would love to capture the glass in the middle
looking less washed out.  A challenge.

Breathtaking!

I have had that issue with stained glass, actually.

It looks gorgeous. I suspect that many photographers have quite a hard time capturing this, given the differences in the colors and brightness.
