Inside Montserrat

Stained Glass Windows

Until I traveled to Europe I never really had an appreciation for how impressive the inside of churches are.  However, after seeing the many amazing cathedrals and churches all over Europe, I enjoy churches of all sizes, both for their amazing artwork and wonderful architecture.  In particular, I enjoy stained glass windows, each telling its own story and the vibe created by sunlight flowing in through the colored glass.

Stained Glass Of Montserrat

This stained glass window is located inside the church at Montserrat, a monastery located up in the mountains north of Barcelona.  The inside of the church is quite impressive and the surrounding scenery is beautiful.  The day we were visiting was a Sunday and we arrived shortly before the church service was starting so there was not much time to take pictures but I did manage to get this shot of one of the stained glass windows inside the church.

Go Westward!

Busy Busy

Haven’t been able to put as much time into writing much for the posts here this week, started a new job on Monday and moving into a new place tomorrow so life has been a little chaotic lately.  Might miss posting here for a day or two until we get internet, hopefully not but we’ll see.  If I do disappear for a day or two, I will definitely be back soon.

Columbus Status

This statue is located in Barcelona, Spain with Columbus pointing to the “New World.”  The statue is located at the end of one of the busiest streets in the city, so getting a photo of the statue without people in it was near impossible without very tight cropping and I prefer how this picture came out.  The clouds on this day were fairly interesting and the statue is such an interesting landmark that it’s hard to take a bad picture of it.
