The beautiful mission and grounds are a National Historic Landmark 
and a must-see for anyone traveling through the Monterey area.

Mission Carmel is a goldmine for windows and doors.

Hoped you had a fabulous Mother's Day.

the angle of the deep walls probably lets in a lot more light than one might imagine. beautiful stone work as well.

What a fine window - the look of the past! I like the arrangement here, the glass inset so the rain stays out or lets the light in while leaving the heat out too. Cool and classic!

That is one great looking window. The flowers below it adds to its beauty! Nice shot!

I absolutely ADORE this charming window and the beautiful roses beneath it! I'm a total sucker for windows like this, and similar inviting doorways and enchanting gates. And though I've only been there once, I fell in love with Carmel (who wouldn't?) Such a charming place, how I'd love to return there with my camera!

Beautiful capture, Linnea!
