Autumn Light


There’s something about light filtering through autumn leaves that reminds me of opaque stained glass, but with even greater luminosity than anything manmade. Its beauty is all the more special because it is so ephemeral.

    Oh, so lovely! 🙂

  2. Always reminds me of “Templar glass” from the old cathedrals. It is living light.

    I’ve read in the tourist guide books that say stained glass was designed to teach bible stories for the masses who couldn’t read. I think your photograph and your small essay reflects this sentiment — this ephemeral golden light certainly reminds me of the love all around, and that it can only be appreciated in this very moment.

  4. Yes! What Woodland Gnome so beautifully said. This photograph is a gem, Eliza.

    A gorgeous view – and yes – stained glass is a wonderful comparison.

    I hear you! It is so uplifting at this time of year 🙂

  8. I had never thought about the “stained glass” effect, but it so fits!
