It's like urbexing with an invite.
The church itself; St Matthews was consecrated in 1843 and according to the internet it's the only flint stone church in Lincolnshire. Is it a that a wow thing?
I went armed with a couple of lenses; 24-70, 70-200 and a tripod (and obviously a camera). I used both lenses and just had a play.
It was windy at the top (excuse no.1) and I don't do landscapes (excuse no.2) but the shots that I got have come out quite well, in my opinion.
It wouldn't be right to not get shots of Sutton Bridge's namesake and it's other most famous landmark.
So it turns out that behind the cross is a door but what's behind the door?
Back inside I captured a few more sights that only a few will ever see.
|This thing is loud when it goes off!|
|I do hope that I can persuade the powers that be to get a shot up here of a wedding!!!|
As I said above and I'm sure I've said before in previous blogs; I'm no landscape photographer.
It's both because I'm not really into landscapes and/or because of this I don't practice and try to get better at shooting them. But when faced with the almost 360 degree view I thought I would create a panorama of what 'makes' Sutton Bridge; One image containing both the bridge and the power station.
It took 9 shots in total. And 2 attempts because of the wind that resulted in a couple of shaky shots.
I used Lightroom 1st to merge the images but I couldn't get the horizon to be straight. The merging process via Lightroom resulted in an un-level horizon; the program created a hill to the left of the power station and there is no such thing as a hill in the fens.
So Photoshop was the answer but this caused a few headaches.
It wouldn't merge all of the images seamlessly; probably the same problem that caused Lightroom to make a non existent hill.
|Photoshop just didn't understand!!!!|
So I merged the 1st 6 images together, merged another 1 to those 6 afterwards and then finally added the final 2 images that resulted in a much better composite. But theres still a slight raised area which IM SURE is not there in reality.

Thank you Mark for the invite.
