Queenscliff, St George the Martyr at night

This rather wonderfully lit church was just up the road from where we stayed in Queenscliff a few months ago.

We would walk past it most evenings on the way home from the beach / pier / fish and chip shop or restaurant.  In the end I remembered to take my camera on the outward leg of these journeys, so that I could take some pictures on the way home.

The electricity (or telephone?) lines are a bit of a pain, but I do like the whole colour of the pictures.



Next time I go back to Queenscliff I think I may have to try to photograph this building again.

You can find more images from around the world at Our World Tuesday.  Enjoy the pictures.  SM

Well worth trying again, although I like these shots, even with the lines. Those lines often mess up an otherwise fantastic shot don't they.

Maybe some day we will figure out a way of distributing and/or generating electricity in a way that will render lines like these obsolete.

That's a beautiful building. The lighting is very nice...we just can't get away from power lines though sometimes.

Lovely church- any idea when it was built? And the lines are a sign of our times -photoshop them? I don't mind them.

Beautiful. Funny, I had the same issue (telephone/electrical wires) when trying to photograph a church in Bucharest last year. There was no way to get a shot of the church without a bunch of lines in the way!

Gothic style is fantastic as always! The stained glass rose window must be beautiful!

Lovely photos! Utility lines are an unfortunate reality but they don't take away much here.

The soft lighting and coloring make for nice photos, despite the lines.
