Chagall Windows, Reims Cathedral, France, photo by John Ecker, Pantheon Photography

CHAGALL WINDOWS, REIMS CATHEDRAL, FRANCE:    The Cathedral of Notre Dame at Reims is an excellent Gothic cathedral that is uncomplicated and straightforward in its layout and execution.  Like other French cathedrals, Reims was not spared in the First or Second World Wars.  It caught fire in 1918 during a bombardment and lead from the roof oozed through the mouths of the gargoyle rain spouts.  Five chapels are tightly placed around the ambulatory and are fairly shallow.  The ‘axial’ chapel is slightly deeper and it is here where the beautiful Marc Chagall windows dazzle visitors.  Shot handheld with a Nikon D300, Nikkor AF-S 16-85 lens at 16mm, 1/6 second, f3.5, ISO 800.  Photo by John Ecker
