photoblog image St.Mary's Church, Lindisfarne  2 of 3

St.Mary's Church, Lindisfarne 2 of 3

Taken from a different vantage point this is another view of St.Mary's Church, Lindisfarne, in Northumberland, that I featured yesterday.

One can only visit the island at times when the tide is suitable and uncovers the causeway to and from the island.

More details are available at http://www.lindisfarne.org.uk/

I like the way you have emphasised the stonework in this, Brian. I'm trying to work out you point of view; would the "mainland" be behind you with Lindisfarne Castle in front?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. The castle is more or less to my right and the mainland in an arc behind me.

It looks like a toy church! I think yesterday's picture benefited from being seen in context.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, I tend to agree with you, I of course have the benefit of having been there whereas others haven't, to put this in context.
What a wonderful structure Brian. The light is superb!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Love the stonework here Brian..Is it still in use?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, it is very much in use and of course crowded out by fellow tourists like us during the day.

What a beautiful church- built up on earth - pointing to the heaven! It must have been a lovely way!
Brian Walbey: It was Philine, thanks for your comment.
this i like just because its so easy to get over exposure on a shot like this and loose details but you havent dont that here and i can see the bricks nice and clear. was it just not as hot as it looked? or late afternoon
Brian Walbey: It was a nice warm day Ryan, about mid-day, the time the experts say don't take pictures. Thanks for your comment.
preciosa, alta nitidez y detalles. Saludos
Brian Walbey: Gracias mucho por su comentario

Well captured Brian,also loved the natural grasses and weeds etc in yesterdays posting. Makes one wonder how long it would take for nature to reclaim the area,if left to its own devices?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graham. No doubt nature wouldn't take all that long Graham. By the way, did you see the little train I posted on Saturday?
What a wonderful shot! I like this better than yesterday's -- certainly the church feels much grander. And your capture of the detailed stonework is superb!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Donals. I took a series here and these two were the ones I felt worth posting.
Lovely Crisp picture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Martin.
This one is very cool. Great angle, view and colors. Just the sky is a bit noisy.
Brian Walbey: You could be right about the sky Paul, a bit too much Topaz perhaps.
