Angles at Holne

I took this with a wide angle. The result was weird distortion all over the place. Even the gravestones are at weird angles. So I made that part of the photo. As the tree was very dark, I underexposed it which fortuitously faded out the church behind it.

Holne Church is in a hamlet on Dartmoor, England. It's claim to fame is that Charles Kingsley's father was rector here, and Charles was baptised in the church.

The yew tree is also amazing. It is one tree with four trunks and must be very old. The church dates from 1250.
great job on the angle shot.

Wide angles are great fun. This looks like a place for many shots throughout the year.

I love trees! This one is fabulous... I want to hide in it! Where do you live?

@kelkel This tree is on the southern slopes of Dartmoor. Holne is close to where I live.
