Night scene in Cockermouth Church

With a busy night time economy and some good real ale pubs its too easy to miss out on some startling scenes, I was lucky to walk past this Church one evening when it was lit from inside and created a magical and picturesque scene.

Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Castries St Lucia

Stepping out of the Caribbean heat and into this wonderful and cool Cathedral is a revelation. The stained glass windows depicting the life and death of Christ are designed with all the colour and flair you would expect on a tropical island.

Using the techniques developed in Europe but with the warmth  energy and exuberance of the local people these windows are second to none.

Dramatic bay windows in Shrewsbury

If your going to have a bay window, then have a bay window. Set it with Ionic stone columns with a wrought iron balcony above it, floor to ceiling windows and georgian bar for decoration. Such a setting would be a perfect location for the meeting of a couple like Aristotle Onassis and Maria Callas?
