Cove Church and Cemetery

This post contains the other photos of Cove Church. They were made on an early morning last autumn when my fancy DSLR decided to take the day off so I used my lowly smartphone on general principles…..and because I had no other choice.

A couple shots of the front of the church, never could decide which one I liked better so kept both of them. Feel free to like either of them, both or none. As is often the case with the tiny country churches in the area, it shows a bit of age and the efforts of members to add on or repair over the years.

A couple more views of the church, these were taken with a little more of the setting.

Finally, two shots of the cemetery.

Strange as it may sound, I find the cemetery intriguing in its almost organic appearance. I have the impression the trees grew where they are in order to stand guard over the church and those who are buried here. An impression needing a deeper exploration, there may yet be more to this story

Looking back on this group of photos after several months I notice the sky most, the way clouds, light, shadow and color all come together. At the time they were made I had been mostly focusing on what was on the ground. Yet as I recall the day, the sky was looking very much like this.

Thank you for reading, until next time.
