Six more from Belmead. These have been post processed and modified (except where noted). The first is a triple exposure of the chapel at St Francis de Sales. The crumbling walls are offset by the beautiful stained glass. Until you get close.

The next image is the main altar at St Francis de Sales. Slowly, time and vandals are robbing the place of its former glory.

The image below is taken from the granary to the barns. Only sharpening and some exposure correction on this image.

Lee these images are original, thoughtful and beautiful. You are definitely capturing the feeling of Belmead. I can sense the life that went on there. I'm smiling a little because when we first met you said you didn't give much attention to the barn area because you hadn't found much of interest there. Well, looks like you found something this visit. Congrats.
