Padiham, Lancashire

This is the East Window of St.Leonard's Parish Church, Padiham. The window is made up of five lights of stained glass by Wailes of Newcastle and is dated 1869. The main part of the window shows Christ with his apostles. Each apostle is shown holding a quill to represent their authorship of a gospel - St.John with his symbol, an eagle, emblematic of courage and immortality; St.Luke with his symbol, a winged beast, an emblem of priesthood; Christ is shown with his symbol, the Lamb of God; St.Mark with a winged lion which represents the wilderness; and St.Matthew with his symbol, an angel. The window is around 30 feet in height, and had to be taken from the opposite end of the church using a medium telephoto lens.

Very well saturated colours and shooting from a distance has alleviated ant converging verticals. Excellent job David

Makes me want to go there. You have created a fine record of this beautiful window. The narrative adds to it and I wish more photographers here would take the trouble to give this kind of information. Cheers to you David.
