A blue sky and sun like that make it nice to go to church without quite going in. Beautiful composition.

Nice shot, Mojo. I like the way the flare from the sun works in this image. It really adds drama and interest.

Very interesting shot. The blu skies tell me it is either a really cold day or a day that I am looking forward to seeing soon. Love the sun.

Nice shot. Churches make great subjects, plenty of mystery and intrigue. This shot makes you want to go in and explore further.

Thaks for sharing.

Very nice! I love the flares of light shining across the front if the church. And the dates are interesting, from a time when people were willing to put a generation or longer into building a church.

Churches and steeples are some of my favorite subjects in photos. I like how you caught the sun shining down.
