Taken on Saturday afternoon on a meet with epz's Dave87, we couldn't have asked for better weather Smile

Fairfield lies between Brookland and Brenzett on a minor road in a deserted part of the Walland Marsh. The area was won from the sea (inned) sometime between 1200 and 1270. The monks from Canterbury built dykes to the western edge of the Rhee Wall (the sea defenses built by the Romans) and enclosed the land so reclaiming the rich and fertile soil from the sea.

Fayrefelde existed before 1595 as a map of the time shows the village approximately where the church now sits. It is likely that as the land became more reclaimed so the village sprung up.

Nowadays all that can be seen is the church lying down from the road embankment which is probably the original inning wall. St Thomas a Becket at Fairfield is one of those churches supported by the Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust .

Thanks as always for your time, your thoughts/comments are very welcome.

Looks great, Sarah. I like the way the water provides you with a lead in and a reflection.

Thoroughly enjoying viewing your shots taken on Saturday Sarah and certainly does work a real treat for me. A pleasure to view.

Not sure how to explain to John - I didnít take any mate!! One thing I am sure of - a super lady lives on this page and the weather was great. Sound mirrors on Sunday from me Sarah (I hope).

Again Great composition and lead in and the use of the polarizer worked wonders on the sky also helped by the vapour trails . The field to the left just below the horizon line is a little too light and for me there is too much foreground .nearly half of the picture is just grasses If this had been my shot I would have cropped some of this off I would also have reduced the contrast again .This is of course just personal prefernce.
