Crucifixion window, Antoniterkirche, Cologne

Posted by MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 4 April 2010 in Art & Design.

Crucifixion window in Antoniterkirche, Cologne. The only window from the 16th century (1520/1530) of this church that survived the times.

A rare event, when Passover, Western and orthodox Easter occur at the same day(s). Happy Easter, folks!

I find getting the lighting so difficult with these shots but this is perfect.
Happy Easter MS!

Wow! such detail & lighting! The castle, the nails, the skull - fantastic!

@Christine Walsh: The window isn't too much above ground, that's why the distortion was negligible.
