Stone cold face

The other day, I went out for a walk to look for some photos to take. I wanted to see if I could find some snowdrops. I love snowdrops, not just because they’re so beautiful, but because they’re a sign that winter will soon be over and Spring is on it’s way!

When it was very snowy I had wandered into the local churchyard because I could see a stone angel that I wanted to photograph. She was nice, but not brilliant because close up there wasn’t much detail or definition in her face. So I had wandered further into the churchyard, which I’d never done before, and I found a beautiful full length statue of a lady leaning against a cross. I took lots of photos of her face until my fingers got so cold I couldn’t take any more.

I wanted to go back again on my walk and take some more shots of her, but would you believe it, after a twenty minute walk, just as I got there, it started raining! So it was camera back in the bag and no photos!

Here’s one of the shots I’d taken previously. I think she’s beautiful. I want to go back and see what her age is, as the base was covered in snow when I first found her. As well as the beauty of her carved face, I love the way that weathering has gently coloured her and given her a bloom to her cheek.
