Room for one more..?

By KevinEllison
Slightly congested....graveyard around St Michael's church - Shotwick, from EPZ Rhydymwyn meet 21st July 2007. (During this visit, a local character turned up who was responsible for the graveyard gardening and upkeep - who was worried that our tripods were actually metal detectors...(They allegedly have a tombstone of Blackbeard-the pirate and people have turned up in the past wondering whether he took any 'valuable' metal artifacts to his grave....!)

like this - thought about a similar shot, but didn't fancy getting my camera wet! Good to meet you on Saturday

Good shot of the 'busy'ness of the graveyard. A slight S curve would probably bring out more of the stone textures and carving.

Thanks folks... I must at last be doing 'learning'...before I saw these comments I was having a play with B & W and my best result did indeed come about with an 'S' curve...!

Good shot Kevin. It shows how old the graves are with the stones being in so many different angles.

Good to meet you last Saturday.
