Moving Light

Many years ago when I was writing a travel guide for Washington D.C., I discovered that one of its least visited sites was also one of its most beautiful. Overlooking the nation’s capital, the Washington National Cathedral is one of America’s loveliest churchs. The gorgeous video below provides a window on the sublime attraction.

The time lapse video of sunlight moving through the stained glass windows at the Washington National Cathedral is by Colin Winterbottom. With Gregorian chant music by Brian Eno. Visit:  to learn more about the time lapse video — part of the exhibition “Scaling Washington” at the National Building Museum .

NB: if the video does not appear, please click the short url link.
