Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece


I don’t think you can beat stained glass windows as a masterpiece of craftsmanship and art.  We are lucky to have some amazing windows in York Minster.  York Minster looks amazing from the outside but the windows look stunning from inside, especially on a sunny day.

The Rose Window - South Trancept

The Rose Window dates from the 1500s and commemorates the union of the houses of Lancaster and York.  It was restored after a fire to the South Transept in July 1984.
