St. Mary's Church - Interior I by 

St. Mary’s parish church in the village of Church Point, on Hwy 1, the Evangeline Trail, Nova Scotia, Canada, between Yarmouth and Digby, is the largest and tallest wooden building in North America. Completed in 1905 after three years work, St. Mary’s is built in the form of a cross, 41 meters wide and 51 meters long, with a spire soaring 56 meters high. Church Point is fully exposed to the winds off St. Mary’s Bay, so the steeple is ballasted with 36 tonnes of rocks. The three huge bells, organ and stained glass windows were imported from France.

Canon PowerShot 710IS

I’ve been an amateur photographer for as long as I can remember, which at my age is about a couple of weeks! I’ve owned film cameras from Zeiss, Scheider, Leica, Nikon and Olympus, as well as digital cameras from Pentax and Canon, and still have several, if I can ever find them. I currently use a Sony NEX-5N with an 18-55mm zoom lens, and after a year of ownership am still learning all the functions.
