This feels like the Ancient of Days, Chad! Where is it????
gutteridge: Know idea, Ginnie. I'm so sorry to be devoid of basic information but I am not very good at recording where and when. This could be Norfolk.

A beautiful pic indeed, I love the old, stonegrey weatherbeaten British churches (of Norman or Gothic or with perpendicular style- my favourite English word!) with their greens around and the old gravestones! Where we are? I' m curious as you know. Wonderful framing by the old trees (in wintertime?)!
gutteridge: Thank you for the kind words, Phillipe. I think it's in Norfolk but have not made a record.

I dont know if it was intentional, but I like the way you have framed the headstone in the doorway,. Looks like it is popping in for evensong ;o)
gutteridge: Intentional of course, Mike. No I can't lie. The framing was intentional - well it wood be, but I like your take on the accidental gravestone.

Nice framing Chad, although the whole picture has a bit of a bluish cast which makes it look quite cold. This is an interesting looking church - where is it?
gutteridge: I'm sorry, Ingrid I think it could be in Norfolk. I never record when and where they are taken. I'm like that.
Where's this - Clench Abbey?
gutteridge: Lifqua builders and decorators begaon work on thos commision starting with the tower. They were left alone not horrified after ten years when the church inspectors came. "Oh we thought you wanted a cathedral", a spokesperson for Lifqua said. And so they completed the rest of this parish church in the more modest style.

Excellent Chad love the framing
gutteridge: It's all in the framing, vintage.
Wherever it is Chad I like the way you have framed it with the trees and the distortion from the wide angle lens as well.
gutteridge: Thank you very much, Brian.
I go away for a couple of days and you start posting something that resembles a picture.
gutteridge: Damn, caught me at it, Bill.
am i the only one that finds this scene a tad spooky

well spotted and framed chad grin
gutteridge: Thank you doc. It could be spooky being a graveyard but then the low angle does not help.

Sorry, that you don't know the name of this beautiful church/surely cathedral- in Norfolk? I have been in Norfolk and Suffolk many years ago- wonderful Constable land, but I don't remember...
(Oh Chad, what have you done again with my beloved name, you now have declined through all possible forms, only Philomele is missing... My brother said that there is/ was an announcer/speaker on BBC Phil(ine) C(l)over(?). Nun ja, I always have to put up with this sort of thing!)
