This photo was taken in the County of Kent - UK, close to where my beautiful Mother lives.
Today this Church has been converted into a private home - access to the cemetery is still permitted.
I would like to wish the members of Trek Earth '' A Beautiful Christmas '' filled with Good Cheer & Happiness also '' A Healthy & Prosperous New Year ''

hello Dawn, Moody photo. Interesting cemetery, quite different that we have in Poland. And how strange it must be to live in a church, even so small! Nice title.
I wish you and your family beautiful healthy Christmas and happy New Year, full of joy and love.

An interesting story is attached to this place. It looks really mysterious with the cemetery captured in the foreground. Well seen and taken with a spectacular sharpness result. Have a lovely Christmas Time too!

cemeteries are really great motives for photography!
You captured here excellently the whole beauty and uniqueness of this church and adjacent cementary.
I like also this strong graphics of the image-looks like HDR and really works well with the photographed subject!
Wish You Merry Christmas and all the Best in the New Year!

We used to live in Ashford before we moved to France, though I can't say I ever visited this cemetery, more's the pity. I like the point of view here looking across the gravestones toward the focal point offered by the unusual and attractive building. It is perhaps a little over-sharp, but that doesn't bother me, the resulting graininess contributes to the mood of the shot.
A very Merry Christmas to you and yours.

una scena tipicamente inglese, di ottima qualità e con bei colori.
Particolare l'architettura della chiesa, si unisce molto bene al verde che la contorna.

J'aime beaucoup cet endroit. Les tombes sont très photogéniques avec la végétation qui s'accroche à la pierre et cet beau bâtiment à l'arrière plan. J'apprécie l'atmosphère qui se dégage.

Lovely facade of the erstwhile church with the cemetery in the FG. Amazing sharpness and perfect light. Very well done. TFS.

Warm greetings from southern Spain.

What a beautiful image. The textures across this whole scene are just amazing, i feel if I touched the screen here, I could feel the rough detail of the headstones and the softness of the grass. Its a beautiful little house too, very much like something from a fairytale with its miniature gothic design. Really beautifully done.
A very happy Christmas to you too, thanks for all the sharing of your gallery through the year.

Oopps, I didn't quite expect this when I opened the thumbnail with the title you got for this photo. Maybe, my feelings was just otherwise. But, I must say that you captured excellently the mood of the cemetery. Others may be oblivious to it, others may have simply forgotten them....but not for Dawn who considers them to be "sleeping with the stars". Well done! :-)

It must be strange to live in an old church and so close to a cemetry. It's a very good pov and composition, with the old tombstones in foreground. Their details and textures are fabulous!
Have a great New Year!

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the previous old church with lovely shape and cemetry with many tasteful gravestones which is surrounded rich greenery and calm atmosphere. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and the beautiful color combination.

The length of the cemetery is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is sowing the details and colours of the house. The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.

so this is now a home? right along side the cemetary! wow.
I know some people would certainly NOT enjoy that, while others won't mind at all.
There's a home for everyone :)
I would LOVE to be able to see the inside of the old church/home. I bet its beautiful.
love the tombstones too, there's lots of history and rustic charm here.
enjoy your day

Looks like the cemetery and the little church are very old. I like the architecture of the church but I don't know about living next to a cemetery. Nicely captured with good details showing the age of the those tombstones. Well done, tfs.

Hi Dawny !!
the old church stands out really nicely against the dark background, the whole scene look very peaceful even though there is a lot of " company "
Sharp & colourful....... it looks fantastic.

Very picturesque. The bricks and the old cement form a nice view, very somber and well contrasted with the green around. Great work, congratulations!
