The Forward Church

Blog Post #6790
InSpired Sunday and Shadow Shot Sunday.
The Forward for Christ Baptist Church is near Luray. I took these photos last year on a pretty summer day. 

You've probably been told to not face the sun when you take a picture. but that's a rule you can break if you shade your lens. The first photo is facing the sun but it's a more dramatic image, with long shadows coming toward you, and that beautiful sky. The sun is behind the clouds and high enough to not glare on the lens.


  1. You captured a lovely sky with the church, very nice

  2. Love those clouds and the steeple is some sharp point.

  3. Shading your lens is a good tip...I’ll have to figure out how to do that; I’m such an amateur.

  4. Lovely shadows from the church ~ Great to 'see you here' again ~ ^_^

    Happy Day to you,

  5. I love churches in all shapes and sizes. Have a great week.

  6. I sometimes get some of my best photos when I photograph into the sun.

  7. A nice looking Church, and I loved the clouds in your first photograph.

    All the best Jan

  8. Lovely photos of this church.

  9. I have lots of church pics but I don't think i Have this one. Is it in SC or Page?
