Night falls quietly

Just before 4:00 p.m. the sun still warmed the four tall eucalyptus trees down at our local monastery.
Then only the colored church windows caught the last bits of sunlight.
.
SkyWatch Friday is beginning now. Fly on over to visit.

The way our eucalypts have spread throughout the world never ceases to surprise me. They always remind me of home. Lovely light in your photo.

Interesting sky tone (especially in the last photo) as it highlights the building shape!

The Good Life in Virginia said...

beautiful shots ... like them enlarged...and the light through the stained glass, very nice.

The silhouette of the monastery looks great in the second shot.

Have a great weekend.

I imagine that was why chuch windows were created for. With the intention of attracting attention, and with a purpose of aestetics.

These 2 pictures of the monastery are so relaxing, and peaceful. It is timeless. No references to modernity.
