Images of Ainstable Church

October 01, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Ainstable in Cumbria is a tiny hamlet, housing no more than 500 people. It is in a very rural part of Cumbria where farming makes up for the vast percentage of employment. Other than a few houses it has, in the main, remained unspoiled.

 

The current Church, the Church Of St Michael, was built in 1872, on the site of a medieval church and is unusual in the fact that it has 2 external bells without the usual bell tower.

 

I visited in August 2012, the weather was grand, with clear blue skies. It was a great subject to photograph and I was very pleased with the resulting digital images. I used a Canon EOS 60D DSLR, a Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 Wide Angle Lens, and I also used a circular polarizing filter to make the blue sky more intense. 

 

I really find churches and church yards great places to visit and photograph and St Michael's is no different. It is a very tranquil place to visit and spend time exploring, especially on a warm, sunny, August afternoon.

 

Until next time, stay safe.
