Somerleyton Church 1/5

Our July holiday to Suffolk saw a days visit to Somerleyton, near Lowestoft.  There is a lovely little church on the edge of the estate, the "big" house of which you will see commencing 25th.October.

 

As we drove down the country road leading to Somerleyton Hall we spied the little church for the estate across the field.  Maureen stopped the car and I grabbed a few shots, of which I prefered this one the most.

Especially idyllic with the wall and gate in the foreground, Brian! Astrid, like Maureen, is used to stopping the car all the time for me. I love it. smile

A cracking point of view, Brian. The gate and the church are perfectly placed; the old tree on the left provides a bit of a frame and the old wall has some beautiful colours and textures. This is a real joy.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Alan.

Very pretty. A new mown field and a splendid church.

Lovely shot Brian, I like the weathered red brick.
The colours of the bricks in that wall and the gate with its' new post lead to that charming distant church. Lovely picture Brian
Brian Walbey: We'd actually missed a turning and I saw this as we turned round, lucky or what!

A finely composed picture- the church doesn't look so "little" (with Lady chapel?) and a churchyard as I assume. Where are the sheep and the cows on the large meadow?
Brian Walbey: There were a few sheep further up the filed Philine, is is quite a big one.
A beautiful English scene beautifully shot Brian. I can almost feel the summer breeze and hear the Skylarks singing, luv it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks George, we were lucky, it was a lovely day.
loveley composition
A beautiful composition of a typically english scene Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tim.
