Hymns of praise



I don't know why I thought the autumn colours were going to be poor this year... This tree on the drive of Saltaire's United Reformed Church is really very attractive, tipped with red and gold - a hymn of praise to the Creator God. The church was open for the Sunday morning service, hence the line of cars  - but it's only in the mornings that the sun catches the church and tree in this way. Later in the day it swings behind the church, not brilliant for photos.  In fact, getting a good picture of the church itself is much more likely on a softly lit winter day.  This one was taken a couple of weeks ago. As a photographer, you have to take your chances while you can; this weekend it's unremittingly damp and grey.

  1. Your blog icon came up next to Arizona Wild Woman on my blog list. She also had a post about a hymn. The Mormon Tabernacle choir. It is fabulous. If you have time, go and listen to it.
    You have captured the light well. Its a great scene.

  4. The circular steeple on this church is wonderful. I have never seen a round one before now. The whole picture is so perfect.

  7. I am glad you were out with your camera when the weather was good. I like the colors on the tree and church, as well as the clear blue sky. Sorry about the dark and wet weather . . . seems you have had a lot of that this year.
