Some stained glass from Notre-Dame-De-La-Tronchaye, Rochefort-en-Terre, Morbihan, France

This fine church is located in what was apparently deemed in 2016 the favourite village of the French. It is a rather charming (and quite busy) place. Tradition has it that in the 10th Century, during Norman invasions, a priest hid an image of Our Lady in a tree trunk (“tronchaye”) – two centuries later, a shepherdess rediscovered it at the site of what became the Church.

More than usual, I found the interplay of light and glass defeated my phone camera:

The Church was fairly busy with worshippers and tourists (one couldn’t be totally sure of the distinction) which inhibited me a little in snapping away.
