Perhaps this'll have a little too much black at the bottom for some, but I like the shape of the silhouette, and the distinctive shape of the tower (if you know the area, that is ).
I loved the sky too, & spent a while dodging & burning to get the best from it, something I don't often do.
The knobbly line to the right of the tower isn't a drystone wall, though there is one (suitably cemented in place in these times of health & safety), it's the gravestones peeking over from the graveyard inside. This part of the churchyard stands on higher ground, and it is raised around 3 or 4 feet above the surrounding area. Though the wall is probably four or five feet high, it's only about 2 feet above the ground inside, hence you can see the gravestones. Technically, the people intered on this side of the church were buried above ground.
The tower is part of the original church, raplaced by the newer building to the right & out of shot, when some disaster (I think a fire) occured. There's a plaque about it on the tower, but I didn't think to photograph it so I'd know.
