Sunday Morning Windows

Stained Glass Window in Christchurch Cathedral, Bahamas © 2008 Bo Mackison

Some see these beauties every Sunday morning. Others of us have to be satisfied with a photograph. Christchurch Cathedral, a short walk from Nassau’s Main Street, is a haven from typical tourist fare. The original Gothic structure was built in 1861. Besides its beautiful stained glass windows, it has embedded stone memorials and epitaphs of church members – civic leaders and seafarers alike – that cover the church’s interior walls.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Just beautiful!

  2. They are beautiful!

  3. How beautiful! I’m glad you took your camera on that trip!

  4. That is a stonker of a picture, stain glass can be quite hard if the light is too strong but that one is just right.It looks like the light is good as the rest of the pictures have a nice quality to them.

    Cheers Mark

  10. beautiful windows, nice shot. hmmm curious how this would look after applying some perspective correction in ps? either way, nicely done!

  11. Ankush: Thanks for all your comments. Glad you’re back. As far as perspective in ps, sorry your talent and knowledge are way beyond mine. If I ever get Photoshop, maybe I’ll catch up – or at least get a bit closer!
