The gorgeous colors covered the floor of the Catedral de Mallorca on a sunny day. The windows (along with the rest of the cathedral) a design from the famous Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi, who also famously designed "La Sagrada Familia" (a cathedral still in the progress of building in the heart of Barcelona). Original photo taken July 10, 2014.

Chemical additives are used to give glass certain colors. For example, copper oxide is used to stain glass green, and cobalt is used to make it blue.
