St.Giles Church - Calke Abbey 4/7

Although the church is simple in construction there is this fine stained glass window behind the small table that serves as the altar.

This is so beautiful.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn, it is also unusual for me to get such a good stained glass window picture.
Oh yay! So glad you got a close up of the stained glass- I love all the shades of red in this one- great image!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, I was hoping it would be popular and it is.

Nice little daub of colour in the place, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes just adds a touch of colour doesn't it.

It looks like Victorian glass Brian
Brian Walbey: It might well be Chris, whatever it is very nice glass.
That cross is far too large.
Brian Walbey: Good job they never put a huge one in then Chad smile
gorgeous colors, and sharp
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
This is a very beautiful window I really like the geometric aspect of the designs.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a nice window, I think a lot of thought went into its design so that it matched either side.
Love stained glass windows Brian have quite a big file of them.
Brian Walbey: Yes they are nice Pedroeric, usually I manage to burn out the white bits but there isn't much of that in this window.

A fine photo of the East Window and its details: It is said to be created "in memory of Sir George Crewe (8th Baronet), the restorer of the church. The three scenes are believed to relate to Solomon's building of the Temple in Jerusalem."
Brian Walbey: Thanks for the information Philine, you managed to dig out some data I didn't find.
This window caught my eye yesterday Brian and it doesn't disappoint close up
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, one of my best windows I think, usually I manage to burn them out.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Sheila.

I always envy your stained glass window images, Brian; you get some lovely colours and there is never any trace of any blowouts.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. You only see the decent ones, usually all I get are blown highlights and that's why you never see them.

Not always an easy subject, especially if it is not bright outside - this has come out beautifully
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl. Fortunately this has very little plain glass, but usually my window shots are rubbish.
A wonderful stained glass window indeed Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yews it is, thanks Richard.
Particularly fine colours in the windows
Brian Walbey: Nice to see a window full of colour instead of large areas of plain glass.
A really lovely window, exposure is spot on.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a nice window John, thanks for your comment.
Nice bit of stained glass window work, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a very nice window Tom.
