Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate

One of the reasons I like photographing old churches is that you see many intricate patterns in the floors, stained glass windows, the stone and wood carvings. They often prove a challenge to photograph and sometimes I much prefer the simplicity of the simple old stone churches that can be found here in North Wales.... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle

Normally at this time of the year I visit Saint Asaph Cathedral in North Wales to photograph the Christmas Tree. It’s a very large tree positioned just before the entrance to the Choir and twinkles with lots of Christmas lights. This year is no exception but there’s no tree. Just a small one in the...

Check, Check…..And Check Again

I could kick myself. I was so intent on getting the exposure right for the stained glass windows that I forgot to check my surroundings. Can you see what’s bugging me? No! I’ll give you a clue. It’s white. Why oh why did I not take time to do a final check and make sure... Continue Reading →

Look into the history of the area – why it started, how it developed. The more research you can do... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

A pattern, apart from the term's use to mean "Template", is a discernible regularity in the world or in a man-made design. As such, the elements of a pattern repeat in a predictable manner. In this photograph I particularly like the pattern of the tiled paving stones which leads you to the main monument. Taken as the... Continue Reading →

Saint Conan’s Kirk – Loch Awe

Although St. Conan's Kirk has already acquired a certain air of antiquity and a considerable reputation as one of the "show places" of Argyll, it is in fact quite modern, so modern that in its present form it was dedicated for worship as recently as 1930. I spotted this church or kirk as we say... Continue Reading →
