Thanks for your comment on this for it is appreciated. I had tried to photograph this church from close by, but the powerlines, poles, fences, bins and other ancillary structures were annoying. But from 500M away it was possible, then I saw this bush in bloom and its form suited the building. And I was satisfied.
I'll be interested to see what our architect friend from Uruguay, Edmundo, has to say about this design, Luud.

I know your problem with the powerlines... But with this bush it´s a great picture - i wish i had found this view ;-)

Yes Andreas, this one is for you. In fact I went a couple of times, once at night, once in the day to see if I could avoid all the obstacles, but it wasn't till I was walking around at the Methodist Conference, a block away on the other side of the Royal Tombs, that I saw this and knew the telephoto would do what I wanted.
So we have a pair of photos now, you and I. And I hope you saw some of the sad destruction of Nuku'alofa in other sets of images in the Lincluden gallery.

I am most delighted also that you took the time to explore the recent pictures in my gallery and to drop me a nice message. Hope you have been enjoying my visit to Tonga.
Good night, from Sydney.

It is good when you see what you are looking for. I almost got a good one at night, but I wasn't able to hold the camera still enough for the necessary exposure. You may have noticed above that Andreas and I had communicated on this previously, hence I was prepared to seek. I found.
