Ayot St Peter church

I went out for a cycle ride this afternoon and the light was fantastic, dramatic clouds broken by strong winter light. I slightly regret not loading-up the motorcycle with my tripod and a plethora of gear and spending the afternoon out making photographs. In particular, Codicote church was lit by glorious warm low light but the sky behind was full of dark dramatic storm clouds. Unfortunately, I didn't have a lens wide enough (I really wish I'd taken by 5x4 view camera!). This is a different church where I had a view across the fields. I had to wait for the sun to break through the clouds, but I think it was worth it.

It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head. Henri Cartier-Bresson
Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

As you say, great light, my favourite sort! Good job you had your camera, when I unexpectedly come across a scene like this I find it’s been left at home. Nice interplay of light and shadow here.

That was worth stopping for. Lovely bit of Victorian brickwork, beautifully lit.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thanks both. Ayot St Peter is one of the earliest Arts and Crafts buildings and is lovely on the outside and gorgeous on the inside.

Knowing the church and the view as well as I do, I would just wince every time I looked at it!

Good shot, Kris. This is one I visited a couple of years ago but sadly it was locked up. Still, the outside was worth photographing for its interesting shape and wonderful brickwork. The two nearby Ayot St Lawrence churches are also interesting places for photography.

It isn't open very often outside of services but worth it when it is. Here is a shot of the inside taken during Heritage weekend last year.

That interior is superb - classic composition coupled with excellent, soft and beautiful colours
