Inside the Church at Guimiliau, Brittany

The Church in Guimiliau is a classic Enclos Paroissial of the 16C-17C: walled enclosure with a Triumphal Arch (for the dead), Ossuary, Calvary, South Porch, Sacristy, and Church. I explore the external carvings every time I visit, and the interior of the building is just as exciting. I posted here in some detail so this is just a reminder using a different lens on the camera.

    • The standard lens on the Canon 600D is 18-200mm but I unhappy with the amount of distortion which can occur. Some of the shots were taken with this lens, but the camera was on a tripod and I used a remote trigger. Others were taken with a wide-angle lens, 10-18mm, and also mounted on a tripod and taken with a remote trigger. The light levels vary widely inside the churches and exposures are generally quite long – up to 6 seconds: ISO 200 and f/14 or f/16
