Took a couple of hours out and about locally today. This is the ruin of the 13th century church at Knaptoft, thought to have been demolished by the victorious Parliamentarian army after the decisive battle of Naesby in 1645.

There's not much left of the building, but it obviously continued in use as a burial ground, there are headstones located at what would have been the centre of the church building dating from the 19th century and some of the graves were as recent as the 1980's.

Anyhow.. I thought a b/w treatment was best for this, but I haven't really got the effect that I wanted. I'm finding the trees are distracting too much from the ruins. I know I could get the desired result digitally but the place is only just down the road so I guess I'll head back and re-shoot another day. The lighting was dead flat and overcast today, which won't have helped, but I was determined to go out and shoot something!
