A Churchyard at Night

A couple of years ago I decided to try my hand at night shots and I thought Cholsey Churchyards a good place so I thought I'd share with you what I took. The view above is St Mary's church which as you can see is well lit.





Part of the churchyard looking towards the chancel.




You might recognize this as it is what I use as the background on my blog.











Some of the old headstones beside the chancel.










A week or so later it snowed so I went back for some more.













A snowy churchyard.






And back to a view of the church again. Both sets were taken in November and December 2010 and I can tell you it was dam cold but it is coming back to that time of year again so I'll be going back to get a few more photo's

  2. I don't think I have seen a churchyard lit up at night.
    This makes the cemetery look very different!

  6. Great photo's. But it likes a bit on a filmset just before the trouble begins as you know my meaning.
