Wow James, this is a super reflection!

Carolyn Ford said...

This is really beautiful. I wouldn't want to step on it. I visited that cathedral SO many years ago. It's something special!

Woody said...

Nice! nothing like highly polished marble or granite to create a mirror.

RuneE said...

Very observant and amazingly colourful for that kind of reflection.

ruma2008 said...

The stained glass is fantastic beauty.

The wave of the reflection does colors elegantly still more...

Thank you.

I love stained glass reflections. In this case, I thought it was a reflection in water! Great!

Clytie said...

What a unique reflection! I too thought it was reflected in water, but now I see it is a highly polished floor!

Alexa said...

This is super—and a bit surprising! I'll have to go over there on a sunny day and check it out.

Matty said...

It's beautiful James. So vivid, even off the floor.

Malyss said...

The floor?! woaw! I don't know what I must admire the most, the reflection or this so well polished floor!:)

Olivier said...

un reflet féerique, superbe

JM said...

This is fantastic, James! I've been there and didn't notice that! :-)))

Rebecca said...

It must have been a highly polished floor for a reflection that nice!

Regina said...

Its truly fabulous!
Wonderful reflections James.
Enjoy the weekend.

Lois said...

So pretty James and amazingly clear too!

Sistertex said...

This is a gorgeous reflection - the floor so shinny and good light must have been flowing through the stained glass. Perfect!

Thom said...

Beautiful my friend. :) So pretty. Have a great weekend :)

Stickup Artist said...

I absolutely love stained glass in churches and we don't see much of it here. This shot is unique because it really is a reflection of a reflection! Great idea indeed and beautifully presented.

Pat said...

I never went inside that cathedral when I visited NYC, just saw it from the outside, and it was beautiful.

The reflection is gorgeous. Makes me wish I had gone inside!

Greyscale Territory said...

A stunning, unusual setting for a reflection! Really lovely colourings of the elegant windows on the floor!

T. Becque said...

What a neat reflection!

Luis Gomez said...

Pretty cool reflection James!

Rinkly Rimes said...

Almost a puzzle picture. Once I got the paving stones in my mind I was able to truly enjoy the magnificent reflection.

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

It is a wonderful reflection, such a plus for the
church, too. I have noticed in NYC these days that
floors are becoming highly polished once more, thus
providing yet another interesting photo opportunity for those of us starved of reflective pools and rivers in
the countryside!

Sylvia K said...

That is such a gorgeous capture, James! The more you look, the more you find! Thanks for the weekly fun! Have a great weekend!

Great photo. It looks like a king's throne with crown jewels.

P.S. I'm back. Better late than never...to blog.

Carole said...

A great picture!

Beverley Baird said...

What a gorgeous reflection! There is something about stained glass windows that is so stunning!

Lew said...

Great capture, James! They must keep the floors polished.

Susan at Stony River said...

Good heavens -- my floors don't shine like that!

Beautiful.

Lily Hydrangea said...

Beautifully done James! The top of each of the three columns of glass remind me of crowns which makes me think of the three kings.
I love the soft golden background color in this too.

Serline said...

Interesting reflections of the colored shapes and patterns.

Irene said...

Great image ... wish you a great weekend!

Kaori said...

Was the floor wet? It's a really beautiful reflection! And so very clear, too :D

Ethereal and a fine shot James. I'm late to the party this week. I finally found some time to take new shots and to get them developed. Hope I can find the time to visit too.

Bonnie Bonsai said...

It's stunning!

I would like to take the opportunity of making special mention here that the only way I can return kind token of appreciation and posting comment is through a Pop Up Window Comment Box. My new template design does not allow the old Embedded Below Post Comment Box entry to get through to most of the bloggers' post. Thanks sincerely.

Reminds me of the Churches I went. The stain glass were breathtaking. I was in a church last year, and took a few photographs. i haven't posted them yet.
