Detail from what remains of one of the gates to the old East Kirk on Sanday. These gates are all that remain of the kirk and now lead to a bare grass field. They are a subject to which I return time and again but which I find extremely difficult to capture well.

Today I avoided the problems by selecting a detail shot instead.
