Light Play … Black Abbey, Kilkenny, Ireland


Time has a way of marching on. We change. We grow. My website gets out of date.

So, I’ve been spending some time lately, in the evenings when my battery is recharging, updating my portal to the world, in particular my photo galleries. One at a time, so it’s not too overwhelming.

This week I’m working on my “Impressions of Ireland.”

Visiting the old churches of Europe is one of my favourite activities when we travel. In particular, my eye is drawn to the play of light from stained glass windows.

In Kilkenny, Ireland, we visited The Black Abbey. This beautiful old church is resplendent with stained glass, including the “Rosary Window” — the largest stained glass window in Ireland. In fact, there is so much light play one hardly knows where to look first.

I captured many images, but this is my favourite. The outline on the stone column clearly shows a figure reflected from the stained glass window across the aisle. To me it looks as if the person depicted is praying.

Or do you see something different?

Thanks for visiting …

Dorothy 🙂
