Outside view of Sherborne Abbey

Last one today, I promise…..

The abbey is made of a beautiful, dark yellow-brown stone. As is most of Sherborne it seems.

Sherborne Abbey

I love to photograph stained glass windows. It started really because I took some photos in Wimborne Minster and my mother used one to make a card for a friend. Since then I have always looked for a good shot. She was with me yesterday in Sherborne and particularly wanted this window. Unfortunately there is a tree outside, so no way to avoid the shadow. Beautiful window all the same (one of many).

Despite some dismal weather (though not as bad as it is today) I visited Sherborne. Had a lovely lunch in a cafe called The Three Wishes, then visited the abbey, camera in hand… What a beautiful place. Far more ornate than I expected. A bonus was that someone was playing the organ, so got to hear the full power of organ music filling the church.

So

So…. to get me started (hope it works), a photo taken on Bournemouth beach a couple of weeks ago. Early morning, glorious sunshine, beach just recently raked, still empty of people. What could be better.
