St. Elisabeth of Hungary, or, as we call her, St. Elisabeth of Thuringia, another window in St. Heinrich und Kunigunde, the small hall church in Nippes, Cologne.

@Ronnie 2¢: I have one more in stock, but tomorrow we'll have a look at the church first.

Philip from South Wales, United Kingdom

Church is blessed to have another detailed and fine stain window. Elisabeth seems sad/serious which is not surprising given her short but interesting life. She did a lot of good work in her short life.

@Philip: She's still very popular here. Another window in two days.

Phil David Alexander Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

What a treasure these windows are. I really like the way they created her portrait here, a masterpiece. Your details are superb.

@Phil David Alexander Morris: Thanks very much! The best one (IMHO) will follow in two days!

Christine Walsh from Astoria, NY, United States

Hah - she looks hungry with that expression! I like the processing.

@Christine Walsh: No fat saints available in that church! And how could they - the windows are quite slim! ;-)

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautiful capture with warm colors and the detail really "pops", particularly at the bottom with the legible words.

@Steven: At full resolution it looks even better. Some day I'll have to repeat this in Cologne Cathedral...

Laurent from Lyon, France

I like stain glass windows picture, and this one is very good, as much as the previous one

@Laurent: Many thanks, Laurent! There's one more left!

SUBLIME! A take worth printing in a magazine or book or catalog! I loved reading about the legend of the bread turned into roses.....
