photoblog image St Lawrence's Church Evesham 1of 5

St Lawrence's Church Evesham 1of 5

Not the most awe inspiring picture but there you go. It was the only one of the outside I took 

 

Nestled in the heart of Evesham’s historic centre, St Lawrence’s Church is part of a triptych of stunning architectural buildings, alongside the parish church of All Saints and the great perpendicular bell tower of the abbey.

The church - of Norman foundation but largely rebuilt in the 18th century - is imposing from the outside, displaying a great six-light window with elaborate tracery.

Once you step inside the true extent of detailed craftwork is revealed. Coloured light reflects throughout the chancel from the breath-taking stained glass windows that dominate the east wall. Depicting the last supper and the resurrection, they were designed by some of the most celebrated stained glass artists of the last 150 years.

With the bright light shining on the other side of the building.. I hope you'll show us the the stained glass from the inside!
Bill Phillips: You will get to see some of the glass E
Sometimes what you have is better than nothing, Bill, so in that case, I'm glad to see this magnificent structure. And, yes, to what Elizabeth has said!
Bill Phillips: It was an afterthought as I wanted to do a series on it!

Yes you will see some glass

Not the best but I quite like the perspective and the light Bill!
Bill Phillips: The inside was what it was all about really Richard

Looking forward to step inside, then. You managed your vertical lines very well, here.
Bill Phillips: It will hopefully be worth the wait. Only a smidgen of adjustment in Lightroom Louis
Just a teaser then till we get inside.
Bill Phillips: Inside was nice

Do I detect some 'frost on the ground'..
Wonderful view of the church, I assume you take us inside too.
Bill Phillips: I do believe it is Lady P. Yes we will be going inside. This was actually taken after I had come out!

Apart from loosing just the top of the tall pointing thing (probably lost in straightening things up?), it's OK seeing that you were in the shadow. What's coming sounds delightful.
Bill Phillips: The glass is rather nice. The tall pointy thing had a sort of ball on the end of it and I left no room for any straightening and lost a bit of it.
Not a bad looking church Bill. Did you use ShiftN on this, I find it is good on landscape format images but not quite so good on portrait formats, it tends to make items like the tower look not quite in perspective like this one.
Bill Phillips: No I tend to use lightroom to do any adjustments these days
Looks like a cheap spire placed on top as an afterthought Bill.
Bill Phillips: I have to agree with you Chad
the picture was taken from a great angle Bill... even if you cut off a few feet off of the steeple grin
....petersmile
Bill Phillips: It was a mere few inches Peter grin

Perhaps you will do better inside, Bill...
Bill Phillips: I think I did
