Photo-a-Day (Friday, 29th January, 2016)
Nice seasonal photo, you have had more snow that we have in Western Canada
This picture is truly breathtaking, the lacy snow laden branches have mesmerised me. Rev David Long, may I save a copy please? Thank you for sharing this winter wonderland, and thank you to my Standish correspondent for alerting me to it. Brilliant indeed.
I remember in my childhood days this church yard looking like this,yonks ago now.
Shame the tree is in the way of that lovely church, good try though, Rev.
Very picturesque photo David,nice mix of different elements.
I like this a lot and I don't think the trees detract in any way. If you just wanted a picture of the church, and there have been many, you would wait for a sunny day. This is an atmospheric winter shot and as such succeeds wonderfully.
Very nice Rev.
That is lovely. Very atmospheric. It would be lovely to see the same scene in the dusk with the lights on in the church, although I'm no photographer and don't know if that would be difficult to take in the dusk.
The tree adds to the picture.....best viewed from inside looking out though!
Harold, good try, what on earth are you on about ? The tree is a big part of the photo, had David not wanted the tree on the photo he would have stood in front of it. We have loads of photos of St Wilfs on WW, this one wants some beating, brilliant is the word, thank you David. Frances, you are welcome, it was no problem.
Harold, I think the tree in the foreground gives the picture an atmospheric beauty rarely seen in shots of this kind. The reverend gentleman can be proud of this stunning photograph.
Harold,sorry but the tree adds to the
scene,it is a beautiful shot.
Beautiful photo. The tree certainly adds something to it.
This picture needs to have a wider audience. It belongs in a book, on greeting cards, calendars etc. I await your OK Rev Long, so I may save it, I have been looking at it all day and would love it to be framed and hung on my wall. That said, I respect copyright and will completely understand if your answer is a no. Roy I truly appreciate you alerting me to pics which are deep and meaningful to me. We must keep in touch. Kind regards.
A special one Rev, you captured it beautifully.
And me Irene as well!
Frances, of course you can use the pic. It's one from my choice for next year's St Wilf's Calendar. (Copies of this year's - Then & Now pics of church and village - are still available from the Parish Office....
Am amazed at this photo, Rev.David. Here in Shevington we had nowhere near as much snow.
It should have snowed for midnight mass.
Rev David, it also looks good in black and white.
it's a ten from len
Many thanks Rev Long, much appreciated. This pic will soon be framed and gracing my wall here in sunny Oz. Also,I shall be in touch with the Parish Office regarding having a copy of this years calendar sent to me. Bless you.
