A very old church in infrared.

There’s been a church at Sompting since before the Norman conquest of the 11th century. The oldest part of the building is the Saxon Tower, which has stonework that has been dated as pre-1000AD.
The Tower and Spire

The Saxon Tower, now standing around 25 metres high with walls 76cm thick, is thought to have been built in stages. The first stage, which was probably once the west end of the Nave (the central part of the church), is believed to have been constructed before 1000AD. The second stage dates from approximately 1050AD, with its Romanesque architectural features providing additional evidence for the dating.

Infrared? This does feel like a leap back in history -- in a magical sort of way.

Beautiful pic, very nice colors. Only if the top tree was occupying less space and not blocking the main church, it would have been better.
9 never the less
