While in New York City, we visited The Cloisters, part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This museum features a massive collection of medieval art. These stained glass windows are from a castle in Austria, circa 1390.

    What an interesting angle to bring out the beauty of the whole window and the patterns of the brick work.

    When I was in middle school, we visiting the Cloisters and what I remember best was the Unicorn Tapestries. Sadly, I haven’t been back there since then. Pictures for another day, I hope?

    Forgot to say, this is a lovely shot of the stained glass. That can be a tricky exposure to nail but you did it beautifully!

    This is a nice shot….. it screams for HDR, next time around.

    Such detail you were able to capture — even without HDR *wink*. I like the perspective from which you shot this.

    By the way, HDR is not nearly as intimidating as it sounds. Once I “crossed over” I laughed at myself for taking so long.

    This is a beautiful perspective, love the stained glass and the sense of “height”! Very dramatic take!
