    It was an overcast day when I went to photograph the church of St Andrew at Butterwick, Lincolnshire, but there were enough holes in the cloud for me to hope I might catch one of them. I waited and waited, and eventually, for a few seconds the light shone down from above!

    Love this picture, it looks ominous and dark, love the shadows on the gravestones really emphasises the fact its a graveyard. Just overall excellent picture. (sorry can't mention much about the exposure or contrast and all the other technical stuff, i have just started in photography and don't know a lot about them, just the basic)

    Thanks JonnyBoy, Deadey, Roger & Abraxas. I like this one better than most of my recent B&W churches because it reminds me of C19 etchings!

    Regards, Tony

    Wonderful shot with great light on the church walls and from the clouds. The b/w treatment really adds a moodiness to the pic.

    Thanks for the kind comments everyone. I've been doing a lot of old churches lately - there are a lot in Lincolnshire - and the damp, dull August weather that most of Britain has been moaning about has been great for the photography of these ancient buildings. Most Augusts there are too many bland blue skies - I much prefer dark and rolling clouds!

    Regards,Tony
