In Heaven with the Door Shut

By Fefe
This beautiful little church is in Dethick Derbyshire, there is nothing else there except a couple of farms and lots of is like being in heaven with the door shut! Smile
The churchyard is very small, in fact you can see most of it here in the image which does make composing the shot rather limited, with my lens anyhow.
I hope you like it. Please view large.

Many thanks for all recent C&C and special thank you's to 'taggart' 'bliba' and 'WaltKnox' for the UA's on my image 'Rainbow'GrinGrinGrinGrin

I like warm tones and the texture of the church.
Shame the wall on the right could not be omitted from the image.
Still a great image
Superb image

When I see an image like this Diane I cant help wondering what a remote and lonely place this must have been when it was built..I imagine it is quite old ???

Everything about this is pleasing. The setting, the light, the stonework, the grasses. If I were to change anything it would be to clone out the electric line.....can't live with 'em can't live without 'emSmileSmileSmile

A very nicely composed image from a very good view point, Diane. Lovely light and a super title.
I guess anyone buried there would certainly have a tomb with a view. Wink
