Saint Tudclud–Penmachno

A bit dark this one but I wanted to emphasize the instrument in the foreground.

Saint Tudclud - Penmachno

Maybe it’s a little too dark…

Anyway. Saint Tudclud was a sixth century Saint, one of the five sons of Seithennyr Said who, with his brother Gwyddno Garanhir, ruled the Ancient Kingdom of Gwynedd, under Maelgwn Gwynedd.

The present church built in 1859 is, as far as is known, the third one to be built on this site and replaces a previous church built about 1600-20.

Closed in 1997 and declared redundant in 1998, with the will of the local village community it reopened in 2009 – the first church in the Church in Wales to be reopened from a redundant state.

    No I don’t think it’s to dark, it’s perfect.

    This is marvelous. I noted that it is a HDR photo. I have never done it but I know about stacking. Is that how you achieved the remarkable depth of field? I have a hi-def laptop and putting this photo on full screen with Flickr makes it something to behold.

      Hi there, DOF was achieved by using f11 as the aperture and a wide angle lens.
