South West England VIII (Lansallos & Fowey, Southern Cornwall
One of the best parts of traveling in the UK (or much of Europe, for that mater) is the open door policy in churches - see an interesting church, and the chances are, the door is open, and on can wander around, photographing, without an hassle or issue. St Ildierna Church in Lansallos, Cornwall was no exception to this, and provided a great opportunity to work with some architecture, both exterior and interior.

The interior of the church was unexpectedly beautiful; large slates formed the floor, and the carved pews and ceiling were lovely. I used my tilt-shift lens for the above image, looking down the church but shifting the lens to the right to include more of the pews.
The final set of images were made back outside of St Ildierna's, using infrared's rendition of the trees, grass and hedge to create a dramatic view from the road towards the church.
We finished the day's photography in the coastal town of Fowey, where we ate dinner, and then roamed around town for half-an-hour photographing, before heading back to the car, and our accomidations.
