Quimper Cathedral

Beautiful pools of coloured light from the stained glass windows fall across the stone floor of Quimper Cathedral.


An Open Invitation:

On Tuesday 12 October I'll be giving a talk to North Cheshire Photographic Society about my photos: NCPS Syllabus

For the first hour I'll be showing lots of my own photos using a digital projector and discussing the work of photographers like our own Hugo Poon, and John Leech who first showed me that photography could be an art form, as well as the work of iconic photographers like Michael Kenna

In the final 30 minutes of the talk I'm going to be discussing basic tips on photographic composition.

I realise that most of you live a long way away but anyone who would like to come will be made very welcome!

I like the way that the colours take on a more vibrant appearance with the darker surround of aminus3. 12 Oct - I'll see what I can do - all I need now is a discrete video camera!

A excellent capture on your part, the light shinning through the stained glass creates an interesting array of colors.
