    Looks a real ancient place and certainly works in black and white .

  • Lilian, there was a special feel about the place and clearly a lot the church and stones could tell us if they could only speak. Thank you!

    that’s a great capture! the clouds and the tombstones remind me of a scene from ‘beetlejuice’ . awesome perspective and very well framed. goodluck on the challenge.

  • Adrian, thank you for your wonderful comment and fave. I’m afraid I don’t remember much about the film but I’m pleased if it reminds you of a scene like that. It was quite a place to visit!
