I’ve just got back from an amazing 10 days in Cornwall. Photography was fantastic, wild landscapes, dramatic moorland, pretty little harbours, but I can’t show you any, as this is about North Wales. As compensation here are a few photographs instead. This weeks challenge is to show a work of art and as I’ve recently been photographing churches for a project I’m going to show you some stained glass from Saint James Church at Holywell.
But it’s not just the stained glass. If you look below the windows you can see some paintings on the wall depicting religious scenes.
And now for something completely different. For years the “Duke of Lancaster” has been moored at Llanerch-y-Mor not too far from Flint. Although you cannot directly visit the ship, the North Wales Coastal Path passes alongside the ship and you can get reasonable photographs from either side of the ship.
In recent years the DuDug Project has been painting the sides of the ship with fantastic works of art by some “leading” artists.
On the edge of the Gwydir forest lies a small stone chapel church, which from the outside it looks so simple but the interior is something else.
The chapel dates to 1673 and was built by Sir Richard Wynn, fourth Baronet of Gwydir, as a family memorial chapel for the Wynns of Gwydir. Inside there is a painted timber ceiling which depicts the Creation, the Trinity and the Last Judgement. The gallery looks down on collegiate style pews with rich wood panelling and carved cherubs.
They say you should always end a blog post with a question as a way of involving your readers, but to be honest I can’t think of any. So here’s the question. What question would you ask here at the end of this post?
