St Moluag's, Eoropie

Last year CJ and I went to Eoropie on Lewis.  We visited St Moluag's, a 13 century church.  It was a magnificent day and we took plenty of photos (nothing new there then).  Dad (and he was by no means alone) always told me that anything leading the eye towards the main subject of a picture should be off-centre.  As a rule I agree.  Rules are, however, there to be broken on occasion.  This, in my view, was one of those occasions.


There's a lot more to this little church but the rest can wait for another day.

  1. I'll be here for a boring set up this summer.
    A wonderful place.
    A grand image.
    Needs a crop to be symmetrical though.
    As you know I prefer to do stuff in camera but if I forget then PS can rescue it.

    1. It is a wonderful place Adrian. I hope you manage to see it when the weather allows decent photography. Whatever it's like it will be an experience!

  3. Your Dad's rule is certainly valid most of the time, but I am glad you broke it for this picture - it is heart-tuggingly beautiful.

  6. I feel as if I could skip and hop through the path to the church...seems quite welcoming.
    Rules are meant to be broken sometimes...loved this photo.
