By a strange coincidence …

… Richard III’s reburial week covered the Vernal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and these stunning photographs were taken (by J.L. Mungovin) at daybreak near the Autumnal Equinox.

    Now we see what the people who chose the stone said, that light reflecting off it would provide all the ‘decoration’ the tomb needed. A truly wonderful sight.

    • Shame it doesn’t happen all the time though – I believe it is not open to the public in the early morning when this was taken. It is certainly the only set of photos I’ve seen showing it. But that’s a shame as it really is stunning!

        It may be different timing throughout the year due to the sun’s elevation. There are also some new stained glass windows due to be fitted soon where there are plain glass ones at present, so that too may add to the light ‘show’.
