Brilliant shot! You captured the building in a great light which accentuates the architect.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances.

Not a pretty building, but it surely looks like it will last another 1000 years, Brian.

[Clever mis-spelling in your anecdote, to get past the SC censor...]
Brian Walbey: It is a bit plain from the back but lovely inside. I did double check the spelling Ray, a word I definitely had to get right!!

It has simple but very appealing lines Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chris, a bit plain from the back but wait till you see the inside.

Good to see another view of this Church, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl, I'm showing the inside tomorrow, which you know all about of course.

From 1030? A very old and well preserved building! A fine composition!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. I just know you would really enjoy going in this small, but very old, church.

I really like the bit on the left.
Brian Walbey: The hedge???
a quiet little place and unassuming.

as i was reading Ray's comment, coincidentally a device started beeping up; how amusing but low battery actually
Brian Walbey: Yes quite plain but very fine inside Ayush. I did do a double check with my spelling, no accidents with this narrative smile
I am getting the feeling I have been in here after all. Is this the one with the ancient decoration on the walls inside?
Brian Walbey: Indeed there is a lot of old wall paintings inside Bill so perhaps you have been inside, check it out later in the week.
I love the light and shadow
Brian Walbey: I was very lucky with the lighting that day.

Who needs a tower when you look this good Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chad. I saw another church in Norfolk on Saturday where the steeple had collapsed and the tower had been removed, you'll get to see it here at some time in the future no doubt.
I looked at yesterdays too and it is indeed a special building. Fine shots Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet. It is a lovely little church and the inside is plain but very impressive as you will see later on.
lovely crisp clear light Brian
Brian Walbey: I was lucky that it was such a fine morning.
Fine looking weather and a peaceful spot.
Brian Walbey: I was lucky that it was such a fine morning and Wareham is not the noisiest of places.
A very nice composition Brian. I like the depth!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
This is a wonderful old church Brian, captured beautifully.
Brian Walbey: Thanks sally, I am showing the inside for the rest of the series which is also very attractive.
I love those stones! Very nice image Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
Nice light and shadow here.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn, the sunlight was just right for this photo.
