The old church in the picturesque little Cornish village of Zennor. Lying on the North Cornwall coast of England, it is alphabetically, the last parish in Britain with its name coming from the Cornish for the local saint, St. Senara. The church dates from the 13th and 15th centuries and is named after St. Senara.

A great capture of this lovely stone-built church with rather an unusual layout. The point of view shows it to very good effect. Superb rendering of the tones and textures in the old stones.

Good Morning Brian,
Your viewpoint has clearly shown the unusual format of this very pretty church, with its tall, central tower and abutting off-shoots. I wonder if it has slowly evolved to this shape as there are two pinnacles with crosses. Whatever, the grave leads in nicely, helping to create quite a symmetrical composition.
The textures are sharply captured.
Perhaps, for me, the grass is a little too saturated but I know this is very much a question of individual taste.
Have a lovely day,

A very interesting note about this ancient church and a lovely photograph with which to illustrate it.
As always, you have composed this picture very well and the colours and lighting are superb. I note what Bev says about the grass - perhaps it is just a tad overly bright, but I think that's poetic (or photographic) licence and it looks absolutely fine to me. Once again blue skies appear to have followed you around - I always seem to struggle to find them!
The details and sharpness are excellent (as always) but I just wonder if I can see some "noise" on the stonework. Perhaps I'm just being a bit "picky" but there seems to be more noise in this picture than there was in your last picture of the watermill here.
On the other hand, it is very easy to see noise or grain when there are large areas of similar light in a picture - your watermill picture was a much "busier" image and so grain is not so easily noticed in that one.
As I say, I'm probably just being a bit picky here, but this is still a wonderful photograph!

What a change - from quitenssential Greek to quintessential English scenery! :)
This is a classic with great composition and beatiful colours, especially the greens - I seem to remember it rained a lot that summer... ;)
Have a nice week

devo ricordarmi di questa piccola chiesa quando verrò a visitare la Cornovaglia.
E' veramente caratteristica e pittoresca.

Une jolie lumière et un bon cadrage pour mettre en valeur cette église à l'architecture particulière.

Simple and attractive presentation of the old church. I like the saturated colors and the summer green grass. Well taken.
