Butter Church

This photo exposes a different side from the one showing here


About Joseph de Lange

Before retirement worked in art galleries, a photo studio, offices, and the trades. Don't travel much anymore but still photograph. For the past 5 years 95% of my photography is done with the phone. My prediction for big cameras: DSLRs and their beautiful lenses and even the smaller mirrorless cameras will be mostly a historical footnote in the not too distant future.

  1. They are both beautiful perspectives. I have to say the one here is superb and looks like a painting.

    • For this photo it took some tramping and exploring the estuary and the bordering landscape. I took the same photo a few days before this one at noontime and realized that the optimum light should be around supper time. It does not show but the sun had disappeared behind a mountain range very shortly after taking this photo.

    So peaceful & incredibly beautiful 🙂

  3. One of my personal favorite photography subjects in the world! I’ve never seen it from this angle before, Joseph, this is WONDERFUL!

    • Thank you Mr Toad, you are right, it is and always has been an intriguing subject for photography. I actually have not been up there for very many years, but mean to in the very near future, hopefully with camera.

    Terrific point of view and great light/reflection. I really like how you find these angles – they make all the difference to documenting the church and surroundings. Give it even more character than is inherent in its now rather decrepit state.

    • …you find these angles… It is a matter of stalking the neighbourhood constantly and then going back for photographing with better light opportunities. That going back for better light opportunities often does not happen but that is okay, too. It leaves some room for self improvement.

        Self improvement, or just a list for future reference when you want to take a picture of something.
        The fact is pretty clear in your photos that you do notice, and do go back, and that makes you part of a pretty small minority (both for noticing and for returning).
