We’re fairly storming through February, it’s a busy month. This week was a mixture of images but it was mostly about light starting with the light in the Cathedral at the end of the day. The stained glass is fascinating – the original images in the stained glass were destroyed by Cromwell and his cronies many many many years ago (I think they threw coffins through the windows). The glass was collected and the windows rebuilt but not in any discernible pattern. It’s the most beautiful hodge podge of glass to look at and every time I’m there I spot something different. Image wise, I couldn’t decide between the majesty of the large window or focussing in on the shards. I think the full scale of it is pretty impressive.
Then you have the vaulted roof and you can imagine being in there once the sunlight streaming through the windows has gone for the evening and the whole place lit by huge chandeliers of candles.
This was followed by some signs of spring including a daffodil, one of the local swans and a field of snowdrops from Welford Park.
For those of you who like GBBO, Welford Park is a private house which is home to the famous tent for part of the year. In spring however, they have a Snowdrop Wood which you can visit and wander round. It’s quite spectacular seeing quite so many snowdrops all at once and I’d recommend a visit next year.
Finally this week we have a wonderful birthday cake made by the youngest stepson for the eldest stepson (it was delicious and did not last very long) and some lovely flowers.
A good week for photos!
