Sanctuary Sidelight

Photographer Peter Stockland reflects on the gift of light in illuminating an affirmation of everlasting faith.

France's Cathédrale Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Castor-de-Nîmes stands where a temple of the Roman Emperor Augustus once stood. Its interior shadows felt like I was sliding past ghosts until I saw this stained glass side window. I composed the picture so smaller sources of light were visible, but the dominant arched afternoon light marked an affirmation of everlasting faith everlasting on the stone walls.
