Snow Covered Farmland

Throwback Thursday travels back to southern Cheshire, England in the late 1980s.

Getting up to find it had snowed overnight I did a tour of southern Cheshire trying to make the most of the snow. This shot was taken on a back road north of the village of Audlem. The 13th century St James’ Church in Audlem is on the horizon.

Throwback Thursday: 20th February 2020

 

Endings

My contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Endings.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before deciding to go with a selection of photos taken at the end of the day.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week is Shadows, Shapes and Silhouettes.

I had lots of ideas for this challenge. Then I thought about this photo. It’s shot of St James’ Church, Audlem, Cheshire, England silhouetted by the setting sun.

It was taken in the mid 1980s and sat ignored in my slide files until I started copying them with a digital camera. It’s strange, since copying and editing the slide the shot has grown on me.
