Moon

This prompt has been giving me fits; I just couldn't find anything. I nearly fell back on another thing from the archives, but then forgot to take my camera to work and... *tears hair*. But I was looking back at some old holiday photos, and realised I can give you the Moon, the Sun, and eleven stars, all bowing down to Joseph in his dream. All in glass and lead, over 700 years old, in Bourges Cathedral. A little blurry, perhaps, and for my taste the artist has gone for a redder version of the moon and stars than I usually imagine, but I hope you enjoy it anyway!



If you want to see this in context, and in a much better image too, the guy who led my tour group has a website full of his high quality photos of stained glass. The navigation is clunky, but the photos are stunning!

Yeah, I got nothin'. Not even something old that I can dredge up and use...

Prompt fail! this week.
Now that's a very clever answer to the prompt! Rather beautiful, too.
You need to tear your hair out more often! This is lovely.

I enjoyed the website. The glass is fabulous.
I love stained glass, and I'm thrilled to see your beautiful answer to this prompt.
