In Rouen’s spectacular Gothic Cathedral the stained-glass ‘Rose’ window framed a ghost of the ruined facade outside.Castillo de Curiel, a medieval castle in Spain has been converted into a hotel with views of its shadow looming over the local landscape from its windows.The view of the foggy inlet the next morning from the front suite at the Waterstreet Hotel in Port Townsend, USA. This wasn’t actually our room; the concierge took us in in order to tempt us to go higher end on our next trip down. It worked – I can just imagine waking up to that view – sure we’ll go for that room, damn the expense!The day was slightly stormy with an interesting sky that certainly increased the wonderfulness of the city viewed through the pink and orange windows on the Rainbow Walk at Aarhus ARoS Modern Art Museum in Denmark. From the apartments in the Amber (pronounced ‘Amer’) Palace near Jaipur there was a view of the formal Islamic-style gardens, usually with water in pools and fountains to cool the air. But not the day we were there, and possibly not at all in the winter, as it was a very comfortable 70 to 75°F for most of February.When we were exploring the dim interior of the cathedral in Zacatecas, Mexico, bands were setting up outside giving our explorations an eerie soundtrack – I felt like I was in some ominous movie!A view through the leaded glass window of Cahir Castle in Ireland.

Beautiful window views you captured, Elizabetz. Great photos and selections. I love these blue, pink, gold colorful sky images.
The photo of “El checking out the view from her room” seems telling a story of “a room with a view” Love it! 🙂
El and I had spent some time at an exhibition of Stanley Kubrick photography at the Musée de Beaux Artes in Brussels. Although I had known about his movies I hadn’t realized that he had spent his earlier years as a photographer for Look, a glossy photo magazine from the 50s and 60s. He had specialized in telling a story in photos and I was heavily influenced by his style for at least a week!
These are wonderful Elizabeth. Especially liked the Castillo and your closing image. Clearly you’ve mastered this technique!
Or at least I’ve mastered the art of selecting a pub with a view…
Nice window views. I also favorite the “El checking out the view from her room” telling a story.
I was under the influence of an exhibition of Stanley Kubrick’s photography I had just seen – he is someone that really knows how to tell a story with photos!
A varied and nice gallery! Loved the last two a bit extra!
Great variety you have here. 👍🏼
beautiful images Eliza!
