Photographer's Note

Another photograph which I am dedicating to our friend, Lisa (delpeoples) who always loves to hear and read about St. Mungo (otherwise known as St. Kentigern), who founded Glasgow Cathedral during his tenure as Archbishop of Strathclyde from 585. His tomb, incidentally, lies in Glasgow Cathedral's crypt.

But this is not Glasgow Cathedral but the lovely little church at Stobo, not far from Peebles in the Scottish Borders, which was also founded by St. Mungo around the same time. This, of course, is not the original church but much of this present build can be dated back to around 1120 AD though, as the tower and nave are on slightly different alignments, they may have been built in different phases.

Yesterday I went with friends on one of our weekly countryside walks near here so we popped into the church to admire its interior. The sun was shining brightly (as it always does on the righteous!) and I loved the way the light coming through the windows left colourful patches of light inside.

ISO 100, 1/60 sec at f/5, focal length 18mm.
