St. Anne’s in Evening Sun

Happy Sunday!

St. Anne’s Church in Kennebunkport is perhaps the best example of the stone churches of Southern Maine. There are many, all built around the same time, by the same denomination, as “summer churches” for the colony of summer residents that was developing along the coast in those days. St. Anne’s sits of a point of land at the mouth of the Kennebunk River, overlooking the stretch of coast to the south. As you can imagine, it has been the backdrop of some pretty high profile weddings over the years. Here, the summer evening sun of Maine, past 7PM, warms the old stone and picks out detail, while the shadows of the trees dapple the already richly textured surface. I across the street, shooting into the church grounds form a good distance. Hence the long focal length…but in hindsight it provided an interesting perspective.

Canon SX20IS at about 200mm equivalent. F5.0 @ 1/250th @ ISO 200. Landscape program.

In Lightroom 3, a touch of Fill Light and Blackpoint just barely right. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen Narrow Edges preset.
