Holy Trinity Church Dunoon

I've taken so many photos of my church, inside and out, in snow and in sunshine, in candlelit darkness and in bleak grey light - but this morning, as I came down from a quick walk in the Bishop's Glen, I saw it from a new angle, one which made it remind me of the little churches in Russia that stick up out of the flatness with their unmistakable shape.

I think this brings out several things: its tininess, its simple attractiveness, the possibility for a numinous silence afforded by its location, its isolation from the other denominations in the town. This isolation is not one of non-communication or hostility, but to me it is one of the beauty and understanding that is a blessing of this place.

The additional photo is of the Bishop's Glen, at the foot of which the church stands.
