and again.. what a mood:) LIKE

Steven Stoddart on May 15, 2011

Hiya Els - I have been looking out for the Churches in my area in recent days... This one was a joy to find. You walk between these magnificent trees and then into the open to stand before the Church.

I have the distinct feeling some of these trees were planted ant the same time as the burials because some of the trees are right next to the graves. The headstones are old and covered in moss but it is the tree that makes the real monument to the departed...

This is a lovely place.

So glad you loved the mood :-) Thank you, Els...

Lovely lane leading to that beautiful church!!

Superb work SuperSteve!! I like it very much!!!

Thank you for your nice note asking about me!! Now that the thaw has finally come, there is so much work to be done here and some moments for fun and adventure too :D When it rains, I get a break but unfortunately the internet doesn't work so well then either... I have been slack in my visits here at Pano and I apologize.

I hope yaw are enjoying the warmth that Spring has brought!!

Happy wishes, GG:)

Hello All* Apologies to all that posted on this a wee while ago... Things have been a bit fraught here so I have been less than 'sharp' at replying :-(



Greetings Achiper - Thaks for stopping by :-) I am glad you liked it...



Hiya Marion I have not seen such a Church path as lovely as this... It certainly rates as one of my favourites :-) But thank you for the *YSL, Marion... Grand to know it 'floats yer boat'!



Hi there Loz - Wow.... a YSL from Marion and Loz.. Now that is a feather in my cap :-) Thanks, Loz...

How's the house hunting going?



Aha! GG So chuffed to hear GG can finally shed her scratchy ol' undies!!

It was good to hear from you and you are most welcome as far as the wee enquiry after you is concerned. Life does have a habit of intruding on Pano time and I suppose it is right and propper that it should...

This is quite a spot, isn't it? It is the proximity of the headstones to the graves that captured my eye... So many of the 'guests' here must have had trees planted when they were er... 'planted'... It would seem 'green' burials are not the exclusive province of us lot in contemporary times :-)

Steven Stoddart on June 24, 2011

Hello Sanja :-) This is one of my favourite Churches... I have yet to find another with trees so close to the graves and to the Church... It is a lovely place and I am glad you enjoyed the photo..

Thanks for the like..

Exquisite. This just makes me feel instantly at peace all over. What a remarkable place, and you captured it all so perfectly, every detail. How incredibly interesting about the trees being SO close to the graves too. My goodness, I have never seen anything like this before. It's just a remarkable shot. ~ Truly mesmerizing indeed.
You have a gift, and you're using it SO WELL. Congratulations! All the best from the USA,

Mary Alice

Steven Stoddart on June 29, 2011

Hello Mary Alice - There has been much concern from a certain Frenchman that I visit graveyards a little too often... This interesting observation got me thinking... a strenuous exercise at the best of times but on this occasion, I actually reached a curious conclusion... My interest in them (at least in the recent past) is down to the one and only Mary Alice... Why? Ah! If you recall, it was one of your photo's (it seems an age ago now) that I commented on and since then, I have been a regular(ish) visitor...

HAve a read of the comments from Francois (he uses the handle "Britplom") here.. It should give an idea....

It is always a pleasure to know you have stopped by :-)

How beautiful and soft this photo if we are walking through the trees back into another time! Well done once again! Like!

Steven Stoddart on July 5, 2011

Hi there Joy - I think you have put your finger on it.... these trees are old and the Church older... So as you walk down the path you could be forgiven for thinking along those lines..

Bradfield St. George Church is one of my favourites because of these trees....

Thanks for the like
