K-3 and DA 18-135
I didn't pay attention o my settings, which ended up being ISO 400 and 1/8000s, I'm not sure I've ever shot at 1/8000s before in my life.

At 1/8000, you have *fixed* the movement!

Thanks Sailor.

I often wonder about the people who built and used these structures. Such small communities, how did they manage to have a pastor for so few people? There's no residence with this one so I guess the pastor was one of the local congregation who also worked an every day job.

Even now the parking lot is plowed, but there are no footprints leading in the door. It's all mysterious if you don't know the history.

It is a very nice and well maintained. Parking lot was cleared, but not the front steps. It could be that the pastor traveled to more than one church originally. Do you know if it is still see for services?

1/8000 worked well to "freeze" the scene, don't you think?
Thanks for sharing Norm!"

I'm tempted to drive by on a Sunday to find out. It still has a functional sign out front, hidden in this view by the snow bank, an visible on google earth.

Holy Trinity Chapel! Great picture! The folks there take such good care of it. It’s part of the Parish of the Valley - so the priest goes to a bunch of churches in the region. But it’s been a chapel for decades and only has one or two services a year.

Thanks.... I been driving by many times a year for 10 years now. With old churches like this I always look but rarely stop waiting for good light. So this one has been a long time coming.

Thanks so much for commenting.

If you're still around, I'd be really curious to know how you found this thread.

Ive been searching around online for some older pictures of the chapel. Id love to find historical pictures of it before it was moved to its current location. I stumbled upon this thread in my search!

I do fairly often when I'm oot with "Special Lady" and she's running "wide open".

Modesty is retained by wearing a hood mind...

I'd hate to think she was running around naked.
But maybe next holiday you can take her to the nearest nudie beach.

Aye she can still turn a few heads... including mine with some of her performances.

Well that won't be here in the Baltic Scotland then... I'll have to wait for travel restrictions to be lifted to do the full reveal.

As for the hood... if it's good enough for Leica... what more can I say.

I believe the whole town was moved from somewhere nearby in the 40s when a dam was put up and the site was flooded? I'm relatively new to the area so I haven't explored enough to find exactly where that might be.
