I absolutely love this shot, I dunno, maybe it's something about the angle or it being in black and white. Not sure, definately one of my favorite pics of yours. :heart:

Thank you, im glad you like it. I will be going back there when the weathers alittle brighter for some colour photographs of the old church and the graveyard. The graveyard itself has turned into a little meadow, with wild flowers and long grass everywhere, and it was really beautiful, I hope to catch that in a picture at some point so watch this space.

Yeah i found it down a small path, the church was boarded up and falling down, and everything was overgrown and wild. I have no idea what the church is called, or anything about it, it was jsut something i stumbled upon.

i did not know that there are still churches falling apart o i mean today everything's restaurated and built up again, but most times chruch ruins are far more interesting because they are mystical. Strange this graveyard got forgotten, it looks so beautiful. Those days they had a better sense for nice gravestones :3

It once again was over cast and drab today, if the sun was out or it was abit brighter i would have took more pictures of the graves. Its funny how now its been abandoned because the grass grows long, and there are wild flowers everywhere. Its turned into like a meadow, there were also animals and birds everywhere, so its very much a wild place. I hope to go back in the comming months and take some more photos, i was ttally unprepared for what i found. The church itself was abandoned apparently due to a fire, thats infomation from some old family members. So yeah watch this space, there will be more.
