St Winnow reflections

A shot of the churchyard at St Winnow with reflections in the River Fowey
18/03/2009
Perhaps this one should be called 'rest in peace.' I had taken some pictures of the church at St Winnow, about a mile or so south of Lostwithiel on the River Fowey. I saw this shot by chance close to where I had parked.

Much of the time the river bed at St Winnow consists of dull mud banks, but when the tide is up and in good light there are some interesting photo possibilities. This was soon after 8 am in mid-March, when the sun was still low enough to cast long shadows straight up the valley.

Daphne du Maurier's sister Angela is buried here. Her gravestone is in the nearest row, towards the left of the picture.
