Photographer's Note

well this morning it was a nice day and i went somewhere where i have been wanting to go for a while, but not had the change what with work and the weather.

this is Saint Germains Church in Marske in the North East of England, its remains stand here proud, originally the church stretched out to the right of the building you see now, but now only the remains of the tower are left standing.

Interesting Fact: Captain Cook's father is buried here, and i walked round his grave earlier in the day. James Cook senior died six weeks after his sonwas killed. most of the stones date from the 1700's, but im sure there are earlier ones!

this church stands right on the cliff top and to the right of the tower you can see the north sea.

The foundations of St Germains Church date back to Saxon times (410-1066). It was rebuilt by the Normans in the 12th century, then demolished and rebuilt in 1821. The picture you see today is all that is left of the building. The tower remains as a landmark following demolition in the 1950s.

i hope you like it, and comments and critiques welcome, thanks for looking! i played with it by converting to B&W and although i thought it looked good, i think the colour version gives it something extra...
