St Francis

St Francis (0135)

It seems, without intending, that I’m gravitating towards churches in photography, and am building something of a series. Today’s image is a detail from the church of St Mary, Selborne. We were in Selborne to walk up the hill and the beech hangers, but more about that another time, perhaps. The village is associated with the naturalist Gilbert White, and houses a museum dedicated to him. In the church you can find this stained glass window, placed in honour of Gilbert White on the bicentenary of his birth. Fittingly, the stained glass depicts St Francis preaching to the birds (in this case very British ones).

The image was taken handheld as a single exposure, exposed for the stained glass. Processing involved selective exposure correction and curves to adjust the contrast of the stone walls.

As always, you can click on the image for a larger version; comments welcome.
