11.16.2020 South Church

While waiting for sunrise on Mount Pollux this past Saturday I looked northward into the fog and made this image of South Church.  There’s a nice community hidden among all the trees but the bell tower is all one can see from the top of the  hill.

I’ve shot the tower from the back of the church in the past.  There are two weather vanes which I think is a cool feature. I posted that image in 2016.

    Beautiful shot, Steve. I love all of the different layers and the church tower rising out of the misit adds a nice focal point to the landscape.

  2. That’s cool, you’d think it was an isolated tower in the forest.

  3. It’s great how the pink church tower stands out and draws our attention. This is a classic example of composition by the rule of thirds.

    • There is a charm to New England churches. I don’t have a personal relationship with them but when they are well made I find them beautiful to behold.This one is lovely inside in a spare but comfortable way.

    That half-light is mesmerizing…the cylindrical part of the tower seems very unusual to me…and I like that black and white from 2016!

    Brilliant timing – the way the tower catches the light is lovely.

    This reminds me of a drive through Shenandoah National Park atop Skyline Drive looking down on the communities and buildings in the valley. I remember focusing in on a set of buildings, all I could see in that area, and wondering what else might be hidden down there. Then sometimes I think about trying to find that location driving the roads in the valley, but I’ve yet to do that. I love the subtle lighting in this photo.

    • Thanks, Todd. I’ve thought the same when visiting the Adirondacks in New York. I’ve driven the country highways there so know how many communities lie hidden among all the trees like you in Shenandoah.


  9. Love the subdued color palette with the highlight right where it needs to be!
