You don't see many shots of these - thanks for sharing.

On my archaeology course, we studied the best ways to photograph all sorts of artefacts, including celtic crosses. Of course, that was looking at it from a recording perspective, rather than an artistic one, but the two often overlap. Overall, as well as getting the lighting from an oblique angle, the best way to bring old stone objects to life is with black and white, using a coloured filter. The choice of colour can vary to suit, but try in the yellow, yellow/green and orange areas for starters if you're converting a colour digital image to b&w.

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for this ~ I will try it, but it sounds a bit technical for me!! The shot was taken on a very dull day, late in the afternoon in a very gloomy churchyard, but the lichen on the cross was such a vivid orange it took my eye.
