Nice shot, there are just so many elements in this photo that make it stand out. You managed to capture an awesome sky. Liked.

I just re-did this photo. I learned over at SOAphoto about how to get rid of that angle that gives a photo a look of severe 3pt perspective. I now have a whole pile of photos that I have posted here that are waiting to be redone, improved and reposted. Thanks Ray for your continued support.

I was about to comment on the sky, but the other Ray beat me to it.

It's an Episcopal church. Varina was Jeff Davis' wife.

r.w. dawson on April 30, 2011

That is correct. They indeed named that area of Henrico County after Mrs. Davis and then when the church came along it picked up the name too. The roots of this church though can be traced to some of the earliest Church of England congregations in Colonial Virginia. After the revolution the Church of England became the Episcopalian Church.
