Artist's Description

“St Brelade’s Church is one of the twelve ancient parish churches in the island of Jersey; it is sited on the west of the island in the parish of St Brelade, in the south-west corner of St Brelade’s Bay. It is unique in the Channel Islands in having one of the very few surviving medieval chapels, the Fisherman’s Chapel, sited directly next to the main church building.”
The graveyard surrounding this picturesque church provides a very peaceful atmosphere, with views across the beautiful bay. During the years of occupation by the German army, many of the soldiers who died were buried here. Upon the liberation of Jersey at the end of WW2, the graves were dug up and the bodies removed back to Germany. What I love is that most of the graves stones the stand in the church yard are made of beautiful Jersey granite, with it’s lovely reddish colour and wonderful rough texture. I also have this shot in colour and I couldn’t make up my mind which I liked better. Could I please have some feedback as to which people prefer? Also, please view larger to enjoy the full effect.
