Thanks-Giving Square is the Chapel of Thanksgiving, a small, spiral tower that features an enclave for prayerful thanks. Inside the chapel, the spiral is topped with stained glass "Glory Window", one of largest horizontally mounted stained-glass pieces in the world. The window was designed by Gabriel Loire of Chartres, France to feature brighter colors as the spiral reached its apex, becoming brighter as it reaches the center. The window appears in a shot in director Terrence Malick's 2011 film The Tree of Life. ~ Wikipedia

Pamela, thank you so very much! It's a beautiful place. I had taken a similar photo 3 or 4 years ago before I was able to shoot in RAW and there's no comparison, lol. I thank you so much for your wonderful compliment and congrats.

I made a stained glass lamp shade, so I can imagine the incredible effort that went into this structure... beautifulcapture.
Betty_A
Betty_A April 29, 2016
Thank you very much, Jim. I can only imagine the amount of work in placing all those beautiful pieces of glass together. What a great sense of satisfaction that must have been. What makes this structure a little more difficult for a photo is the strong backlighting of the overhead sun pouring through with a rather dark interior. Thanks very much for the comment.

Thank you so much, Fernando. You don't know how much I appreciate it. I was not able to get all the spiral in the lens. The strong sunlight shining through brought out the colors. Thank you again.

Eric, Thank you so much. Sorry it's been awhile since I've been back. I'm caught up in getting a business off the ground and don't have time for photography right now ;-( I love your page. You have great style. Yes, the Thanksgiving Chapel is very small. I really appreciate your great comment, and eventually hope to get back to my hobby of photography.
