Crossroads


This is the St Philips Anglican Church in Richmond Hill, with a commanding view of the sea from the brow of the hill. As you can see from the sign, it is directly opposite Richmond Park. In the early days of PE, this hill used to be a location covered with traditional M'Fengu beehive straw huts, and this church served the harbour workers and others who lived here. The park was originally their graveyard.

  1. The colors are so different. It might be the time of day but it looks different. It is a nice photograph and the depth of field is super too.

  5. oml and jenty, the light is so warm because this was taken during one of our sunrise walks. We see this church from our windows and front yard, as we live across the road from it, so we see it in all lights and conditions, I think i have more photos of it than just about anything else! But this particular shot, with the sun glowing on the street sign and the bright blue sea is a favourite.

    Anonymous, welcome, glad you enjoy it!

    Fenix, AWWWW is right, I say that practically every morning when I look out to see how the sea and sky are looking, with the church catching the first rays.
