Chapel of Thanksgiving 06 by LoveandConfections Chapel of Thanksgiving 06 by LoveandConfections
The most prominent and recognizable feature of Thanks-Giving Square is the Chapel of Thanksgiving, a small, spiral tower that features an enclave for prayerful thanks. The entrance to the chapel is at the end of a 125-foot bridge that runs over a cascading waterfall. Inside the chapel, the spiral is topped with stained glass "Glory Window", one of largest horizontally mounted stained-glass pieces in the world. The window features brighter colors as the spiral reached its apex, becoming brighter as it reaches the center.

Edit: Thank you to all who have commented & faved - I really appreciate it!

Placed second in the Photography World's September Challenge! Featured here [link] and in the news article here [link]

Edit after DD: Thank you for the DD (my first!) This is located in downtown Dallas, Texas, USA. It is awe-inspiring and breath-taking. For a few of my CoT pictures, I actually laid down in the center of the Chapel, which was awesome. The view and colors changed from every "angle" (the Chapel is completely circular). It is open to the public and an amazing place to visit.

Daily Deviation

This was suggested to me a while ago and caught my eye as a fantastic colourful piece. However I lost the suggesters name - so thank you whoever you are! A wonderful abstract.

You know what would be amazing? 




If you could actually walk on these like steps...


...still though, even though if you already couldn't, this is amazing nonetheless! 
Totally worth the daily deviation! ;)

I'm not one for religious buildings, but this is really nice. I love that spiral and the color of the stained glass windows that looks like a rainbow. it's perfectly broken up. it does look magical :)
