Today was a return trip to Compton Pauncefoot. I photographed the harvest in the nearby fields last autumn. In those pictures the church provided a point of focus in the background. I have been waiting for an opportunity to capture the church from the other side during a spring morning.
I hoped the stone work of the church would look at its best in the warm light of early morning. Timing was the key: too early in the year and the church would be in the shadow of the hill leading up to the castle. Too late and Warren Hill would do the same. Judging the best day with good weather was going to be a challenge.
The footpath to the east provided a more distant view but the telegraph poles and wires limited the angles.
The last few primroses next to the church gate.
These daffodils were still in good condition.
