[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
St. Peter’s Church, dating back to 1620, is the oldest Anglican Church in the Western Hemisphere. I heard numerous claims about the number of steps leading up to the church, many saying 150 or so. In truth, there are about 40, not too bad a climb.

St. Peter’s Church is located in St. George’s, Bermuda, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Hi Werner,
Splendid white architecture of this church with such beautiful stairs which surely conform with this week's Theme.
Beautiful play with light and shadow. I like the splendid contrast within the image.
Very neat work!
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Bonjour Werner,

Thanks for your contribution.
Archituraly speaking, the place is appealing. Maybe there were 150 steps 400 years ago? Interesting to hear about this "complain". Although he composition is fine, there is a slight tilt on the left. Would it be due to the "wide" angle used?


For a church that old, it look very good especially that it is in the tropics. You did justice to this beautiful building. Good pov and it has a good dof with sharp and crisp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Werner,
A nice presentation and architecture of this beautiful Saint-Peter's church
beautiful vivid colors and light,
Excellent composition and details with a lovely shadow,
My compliments
