Stained glass

One of my favourite shots from our recent short trip to Germany. I took this inside a small church in Rheinbach. The beautiful stained glass windows were a treat in themselves, but taking the photograph in a diagonal approach makes for a strong composition - especially because of the counter diagonal effect of the black stripes.
