This was my village church last year when we had a very cold winter with snow from October right through till March. A very long cold winter indeed, the news from America reminded me of this time. Mind, their temperature are severe.
I do like the wintry scene you get.

A pretty rural Church in the white winter scenery . This winter is very different of the last one . I prefer that , for my taste .

This is a pleasant and atmospheric shot. The muted light gives an interesting mood to the scene. You have well captured the intricate details and textures of the stonework with crisp clarity. The snow laden branches make a great frame for the lovely Church. A very beautiful winterscape composition.

I do like your snow scene.We haven`t had any snow yet, although there has been some up on Dartmoor.
I particularly like the snow on the chains around a grave on the right.

Amazing that you had winter already in october last year! I still haven't seen snow this winter. lovely view of the old church and graveyard. I miss a bit the view of the tree branches u under the white cover like here.
Warm regrads Malgo

Brrrr! This looks cold Iain! Nice to see you back here and hope you and Dawn are keeping well and happy. I like churchyards as a subject and here in the icy grip of winter this conveys a feeling of melancholy. The snow-covered bench is particularly evocative I think. Well managed light and good sharpness, the only think I think could be improved is the cropping around the church itself, I find it a little tight. Have a good weekend. Rosemary

Belle prise de vue de cette vieille église sous la neige. Les arbres enneigés font un beau cadrage. Salutations.

complimenti per questa bella immagine caratterizzata da una nota di magia per la presenza della neve a contrasto con il particolare soggetto e con il colore rude della pietra.
Eccellente la composizione e la gestione della luce.
Nel complesso ujn quadretto assai piacevole da osservare.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Here you have caught a wonderful atmosphere and one nearly can "hear the silence" of this place. This little church somehow transmits something venerable ...
You show it from an advantageous angle.
