Little Crosby Village

Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 23 July 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A photo I took last weekend in Little Crosby Village in NW England where the wheat crop is ready for harvest.

The church you can see is called St Mary's and, according to Wikipedia, was designed by the world famous architect Pugin. The whole village is unusual in that it has been solely inhabited by catholics for as far back as records go in least as far back as the 16th century and the introduction of Anglican Protestantism.

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

very nice, optimal framing with contrast with the golden field and the blue cloudy sky, with the church capturing the eye

A very beautiful place. There are still locations in the Lower Rhine region where you can find small villages like this one, inmidst a sea of wheat, and the tallest building is - of course - the church.

Btw, interesting article about Pugin! I still think that historicism has to be rediscovered.
