Is the light in the windows coming from colored glass? Sure is beautiful. I agree that the large size is better.

Yes Larry, the light is from beautiful stained glass windows which cast a magical light at this time of year as the sun sinks lower in the sky.
This church is at the left hand side and part of the Abbey in the shot that you liked. :-))

Thank you Bill...
It's amazing that it's still here and being used daily for worship after all those years, there must have been countless thousands of people through those doors over the centuries!
