An older religion

The rather lovely church at Great Missenden and some fine old trees in the abbey parkland. Still at peace before the advent of nearby HS2. "Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got Till it's gone They paved paradise And put up a parking lot" Joni Mitchell, 'Big Yellow Taxi'

I love your POV, John. And I LOVE that song!
"They took all the trees, and put em in a tree museum. And they charged the people a dollar and a half to see them"
John Prior: Thanks Elizabeth, it seems we never learn anything.

A lovely solid building isn't it
John Prior: It certainly looks solid, I wonder why they needed the additional buttress.

The juxtaposition is perfect and symbolic, John!
John Prior: Thank you Ginnie smile
The tree is the highlight of the shot for me.
John Prior: My pagan approachsmile
HS2 One of the dumbest ideas since the Brabazon
John Prior: Yes we agree.
Fantastic angle John! quite an moving image
John Prior: Perceptive, thank you Aderonke
A fine way of including both lovely old items in the same picture, I just hope there are no plans to shove that wretched HS2 thing through here.
John Prior: If it goes ahead it will be half a mile away, but no doubt clearly heard
