    wonderful capture love the strong colours as it is lite by the sun,well taken.
    I think there is a stained glass window group, and a church one that this may fit in and vibrant colour group. : )

  • Thanks Karen, it’s a gorgeous window to behold. I might check out those other groups too – it’s already in the ‘vibrant and vivid colour’ group, I figured it would be at home there!
