This image is also available at Lois Bryan at fine art america in an exciting variety of framing and matting options.

This wonderful church, located in Old Bedford Village, a Living History Museum, in Bedford, PA, is called Christ Church and is a replica of the Old Union Church east of Shellsburg, PA. While many of the structures in Old Bedford Village are reconstructed from original homes, barns, churches and shops, some are replicas.

Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens on October 10, 2009, UV and ND grad filters. Shutter 1/500, aperture f/11.0, exp. -.33, iso 640, wb auto, handheld.

Not much post processing on this one other than levels and some cloning of distractions.

    Lovely capture Lois…..beatifully displayed and shown. Love the gorgeous lighting in this too : )

  • Sean, you always find the one thing in a shot that attracted me, too. The skies were threatening … we’d had a huge rainstorm the night before and I didn’t think it would clear at all. But we got lucky .. a bit of light and some fun clouds … can’t ask for more!!!
