Anglican Church Part 4/ Sky Watch

This is my fourth and last post (for the time being) about the Anglican church in Holland Landing, the westernmost (and largest) community in East Gwillimbury. But you can see in this photo that the day I took the photos was a beautiful day with a gorgeous blue sky -- no clouds.

If you look at the first post on this subject, you can see that these small stained-glass windows above are at the back of the church on the south side.
Looking more closely, you can see an angel in the glass. Very subtle from the outside but it may be more pronounced looking at it from the inside with the light behind it.
For more photos celebrating Sky Watch Friday, pop on over to Wigger's World!

Thanks for visiting.
Lovely photos. I would have missed the angel - too cool.
I scrolled down to see your other posts - I noticed in 2 and 3 the sky reflected in the windows - also very nice!

Have you tried taking pictures inside the church? I did at a wedding, but I have never visited a church and asked to come inside to see the stained glass. I'll bet they let you.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful pics!

Craver vii,
I've never been inside this church. I've only admired it from the outside. Maybe someday I'll work up enough courage to ask. ;-)

This is a beautiful church1 I love the little windows. They don't make things like that anymore.

Andrea said...

Very intersting. Wonderful post.

Annie said...

I like that window, rather like a fleur de lis, isn't it.

Beautiful windows and beautiful blue sky. I have enjoyed your church series. Yes!!! go inside. MB

I can see the angel. I have a job for you - take pictures from inside the church showing the window against the sky. Maybe with the sun behind the angel if you can. It is difficult, but ought to be possible and will give some very nice effects.

These are really nice shots. Tracery windows are so beautiful esp. with the backdrop of sky that you showed. Really great.

Jana said...
