It’s colour week for Cee’s Midweek Challenge this week and the chosen colour is light or neon green.
Handily, another of the panes of stained glass in the suncatcher that I featured a couple of weeks ago here fits the bill, and is a pleasingly abstract image (which reminds me a little of a slide under a microscope).
Back last summer, when such things were possible, Madame and lovely daughter went to a stained glass workshop together. While they were there they each made a suncatcher, which sits very well in a sunny garden.
The Chateau de la Riviere which featured last week is not all dereliction by any means. It is currently used as an equine stud farm. It also boasts its own chapel, which features some outstanding stained glass windows.
Some readers might have heard about the fire that caused severe damage over the weekend to the cathedral in the city of Nantes. I’ve posted a couple of images of the stained glass windows in this enormous edifice in the past and here is another, rather poignant one.
As well as the arched window, this image shows the cathedral’s massive baroque organ, dating back about 400 years. According to reports, the organ was almost entirely destroyed by fire, although fortunatelly the cathedral as a whole did not suffer anything like the damage that befell Notre Dame in Paris.
