This 1879 chapel and its strangely-shaped neighbouring building are in the historic little town of Corwen, N.Wales. From here the deep Dee Valley leads eastwards to Llangollen, famous for its International Folk Festival, through the last of the North Welsh mountains towards the rich markets of England. At least, it did in times gone by. Now the rich English tourist market comes by itself in the other direction. The sensible ones bring umbrellas.

The striking roof lines hit me visually as I walked round the corner, on holiday last week. After some agonising, I decided that the converging verticals (admittedly accidental) actually help the composition by providing more triangles. Even the iron fencepost top and railings (also accidental) add rather than detract, by also pointing upwards in a pseudo-triangular fashion. Purists may well beg to differ!

Very nice. The red trim on the chapel really stands out against the gray stonework.

I like your composition.

Very nice. The red is so striking against the drab gray stone.

Alan,

Visually stunning. My only nit pik is that I wish you had a wider angle lens to include more of the left side of the building.

The contrast of grey stone and red paint rivets your attention on the church.

Aloha
