Amateur photog's online photo cache. All photos are original pics taken by author and her husband. This is not a place to see those awe inspiring Ansel Adams, these are ordinary subjects shot on a whim most of the time.
This is St. Mary's in the Mountains Catholic Church, the first Catholic church in Nevada, built in 1876 and holds services and is open to the public. Photography is allowed inside the church.Taken before the rain came down hard for a few minutes.
Very nice photograph. The clouds just add a whole new dimension to the building.See my SkyWatch post here > Canon Pixels
I think we are vlose to that... triple digits are rough. Beautiful shot! Love the stormy skies behind the church and the mountains... lovely.
Would be just a normal photo. The skies however make it special, maybe they are promising the downpour?Cheers, Klaus
Ominous background. Happy SF.
That's a beautiful shot with the clouds behind the church. Striking.
Church steeples in the sky make great drama. Wonderful SWF.
What a beautiful thing to put in front of the sky! Nice shot.
Great photo! What a impressive church!Thanks for your nice words to Flora!
This building so so majestic and beautiful. It looks like it might be on an elevation with a valley below. Lovely photo.
Very magnificent church! And the sky is beautiful!
Simply beautiful with the sky and church blending together!!
Love the tower reaching into the sky! You have lots of neat photos here, I'll be back!
Darn cars, they always want to be part of our pictures ;-) The white of the tower fits beautifully with the sky.
a wonderful sky with a beautiful catholic church..
That really is a pretty church...
What a beautiful church with some big stormy clouds, nice SKF.
Great shot :-)
You're Right! Worth a thousand words!!! Beautiful!
St. Mary's - I've heard of this one. It a very nice photo with ominous looking sky.
Beautiful church and a fantastic sky!!Junie
It's a beautiful little church and the clouds in the background are gorgeous to a storm-clouds lover like me.
Those clouds really make that beautiful architecture stand out!
beautiful! very beautiful. im sure people are looking forward to go to that church.
Very nice. I did an SWF about Cathedral Basicala of St. Augustine which is the oldest diocese in the U.S.
A really old church. I'm surprised it looks this good.
Beautiful church. Love the architectural designs. Love the way you took the photo with the sky as the background. Thanks for dropping by my blog. Have a nice weekend.
Kind of fitting, the church in front of the dark sky, rather like saying no matter the storm the church stands.
What a beautiful building, I'd love to see the inside.
love the photos, beautiful church! I think the sky makes the photo even more special!
Magnificent shot of the church against the sky :)
That's a wonderfully dramatic photo. Looks like that church sits up high on the hill!
I love this shot... :) I love how the clouds add a new depth to the church... :)Thanks for dropping by my blog! :)
Thank you for stopping by.It is great to see via SWF beautiful buildings from all over the world which I would have no chance to see or now about; in your case an extraordinary church; and other interesting photography. Marvel about sunsets, sunrises, clouds in all formations, brilliant blue skies there is no end to it. It's great isn'it?
Lovely church.. the clouds are getting fierce.Thanks for stopping in.~Cathy
Those moody clouds look nice in the background.
you get a lot of rain now in nevada? wish you would blow some to come our way in crete!
Thanks for your nice comment in my blog...But, really, I was expecting "Ansel Adams" shots when I came her...kidding...that being said, you still have some very fine photos here.Cheers,Scotty
Wonderful view! The church is very nice and the sky is just fantastic.Happy Sky Watch!
This building looks like a beautifully iced chocolate cake! And the beautiful sky behind it creates a glorious landscape!
The building is beautifully framed against the ominous sky!!!
Very nice photo! Of course I've always loved pictures of old churches.
Lovely little church raching for the sky. Nice sky too.
Magnificent building. And it looks like it's well above the rest of the town in the background.
At last I got time to come here...The feeling is: "Oh, America!"I love America. The photo: just like constantly rainy days in Portland where I was this year...
what a lovely building...
it is just amazing that there are people who captured pictures of the nature so perfectly great.. just like yours here..happy weekend! thanks for the visit and comment...
Very neat! I think from reading some of my comments, I've been watching too many 80's movies again. Must get back into this century!
the sky looks really ominous. Cool shot. Have a great weekend.Cheers
Beautiful building and clouds.
That's a really striking photo!
That's a beautiful shot!
what a great photo
what a beautiful church! the heavy clouds at the background add to the drama.
I like the steeple rising into that grey cloud. You can sense that the rain is going to fall any moment! Is that the same church in the distance of your last sky watch?Thanks for your visit and comment on mine!
The architecture of this church is so grand! Even with gloomy sky, it still stood out! Happy weekend...sorry for my late visit...
Nice shot!Thanks for stopping by Juneau Daily Photo. Have a great day!
Beautiful picture of the church on what looks like a hill overlooking a town or valley or something. The clouds look like they were going to let loose soon. Interesting history also! Great post!
Good combination, history and sky.
Lovely depth to these promising clouds.
I like that you remind people that your blog is not that of a professional photographer...
Beautiful shot! I like the spires on this church.
This is a beautiful photo, the Church is stunning and I love the drama that is building up in the sky. Have a good weekend.
The church is beautiful. The spire draws one's attention to the sky above. Good capture.
Fabulous sky behind the church, what a view. Thanks for sharing and your kind comments on my post.
