    Default St Marys Church, East Somerton Norfolk.


    Half a Mile down a track set in the woods around Burnley Hall are the Ruins of a 15 Century Perpendicular Parish Church. These Ruins are amongst the most picturesque and largest of all ruined Churches in Norfolk. St Marys was once in its own Parish but was swallowed up by the nearby Winterton Parish and the Church quickly fell into Disrepair.Nice site this one, and my first attempt at Black and White! Go easy on me!...Lookin towards the Church hidden in the trees The Belltower in B and W.

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Lovely place and fab shots, Shucky. The B&W's came out really well. :)

    Thanks a lot Foxy, It was my first attempt and I was a bit nervous. I quite like the effect though.

    Me too. B&W's always have a certain impact, imo. Back in June some colour pics of mine came out rather strange because of harsh, Midday sunlight...lime green grass and pink brickwork, urgh! Since then I've done a B&W conversion on them and they look truck-loads better. :)

    Not a bad set of pics you got there black & white works well on a subject such as this; pehaps a touch of sepia maybe would work well?
    Like the car wheel in shot no.5 mate
