King Henry VIII of England by 

This is one pane of a wonderful stained glass window in the Chapter House of Canterbury Cathedral, Kent, England.


Canon 400D, Canon EF-S 17-85mm IS USM Lens @ 38mm. ISO 400, 1/10sec, f16 exposure compensation-2.

Through my love of History, Henry has always fascinated me, his reign from 1509-1547 was a turbulent part of England’s history. He is perhaps best known for his six wives – 2 of whom he beheaded! A superb brief history of Henry can be found Here

    Very nice! Stained glass is not the easiest thing to capture! My Dad looks very much like Good King Hal – but with kind eyes!

  • Thanks Tina, I know what you mean, difficult but worth it, I just had to capture the craftsmanship in this.
