  1. A great selection of shots…the first shot is superb. How did you keep your camera dry?? The moisture certainly brings out the texture on the stones beautifully.

    • With some difficulty, Iain! Even with the camera tucked inside the coat and, with back to the rain, only brought out long enough to take each shot, it, unavoidably, really, still got a bit wet! Protection from the rain, in the form of shelter from trees and the walls of the church, was sought. In this case, the rain, rather than the light, took precedence in the selection of points of view…

  2. You’ve done a lovely job of photographing this place, never fancied shooting a graveyard myself, perhaps because they aren’t as interesting as this one. Or maybe I’m not looking closely enough – given the subject matter, it would be inappropriate to say that the devil is in the detail, but you know what I mean……

  5. OH, is it possible to get indoor shots, at all? With this type of detail to the outside, I can’t even begin to imagine what you could do with the inside…I have personal interest in this church, and I would appreciate any pictures so much!!
