Stone face

    Newer Older

    I love photographing statues. I think it's because they keep still and
    don't start posing when I want to take a natural shot! There aren't that
    many in the area where I live, but this one is in the churchyard in my
    village, so I can go and see her any time I want to. I discovered her last
    winter when there was deep snow on the ground and I was wandering
    around looking for snowy shots.

    I think she is so beautiful!
    I love the patina that has coloured her over the years that she's been
    standing out in all weathers. When I photographed her in the snow,
    the tree above her was bare branches and let the light through, and
    the deep snow reflected the light. Today she was hiding under the
    canopy of the tree which didn't let much light through. I think that has
    enhanced her green hue.

      She certainly is beautiful and you captured her well. I am adding her to my new Gallery entitled "Statues". Please feel free to visit, if you wish.
