Hyde Chapel Spire Base

One of the first photos I took using the 60x zoom on my new camera was of Hyde Chapel's spire.

It is difficult to get a perfectly clear shot at that length but with a bit of post-processing I finally came up with this image.

You can view the whole spire in this post from June 2013 and the whole chapel in this post from April 2009.

The history of Hyde Chapel goes back to before 1708, when the congregation built the first Christian place of worship in Hyde. A new church replaced the former building in 1846. This second chapel is still in use today, its high steeple, a noted landmark, is also a Grade II, listed building. More information on the church website.

  2. Creative work! It gives the spire a ghostly effect.

  3. It could be a pencil sketch or a needlework pattern. Awesome!
