detail of the 'sunken' church at rutland water. shot for 'the sunday challenge' group. the little bench under the ionic pillared western portico is perfect for rainy day contemplation!

it is indeed a serene view over the lake from that bench - and protected from the worst of the autumn rain as well!

heavy and stately - I don't especially like the style of the architecture but the darkness and shadows make it very intriguing


Of course seen in “The MUSEUM”

thanks rhisiart - i find the architecture interesting , in fact two different architects designed the building, both london based which shows where the neo-classical inspiration derived from. i must admit to really liking the ponderous portico and slender open formed tower, both by the latter of the thomas cundys'
