Sainte-Chapelle (inside the), Paris. Begun some time after 1239 and consecrated on the 26th of April 1248, the Sainte-Chapelle is considered among the highest achievements of the Rayonnant period of Gothic architecture. Although damaged during the French revolution and heavily restored in the 19th century, it retains one of the most extensive in-situ collections of 13th century stained glass anywhere in the world.
Church of Blue by suebujam, via Flickr. This church was in the Iceland town of Seydisfjordur. The churches in Iceland are wonderful for photographers. We were able to go into almost all of them and take wonderful pictures. Each church had beautiful colors or steeples or backdrops or some other charm.
