Once I knew the theme of this event, I knew where my panorama was going to be shot. I've visited this place many times before and every time the first step inside takes your breath away.
The Church at Great Witley (or to give it its full name St. Michael and All Angels Church, Great Witley) is considered to be one of the finest Baroque churches in Britain. The place is awash with colour, from the white walls and gilded decorations throughout the church to the vivid colours of Antonio Bellucci's paintings and the backlit windows depicting scenes from the New Testament. This place is just full of bright and intense colours everywhere, there is gold in every direction.
I was hoping for a bright day to shoot the panorama, to try to get the best illumination for the windows, and I got my wish. The day was forecast to be warm and bright, so a trip out with my family was planned. The church itself is next door to Witley Court, a once impressive stately home, but now a rather well preserved ruin of it's former self in the care of English Heritage. A picnic was packed and my daughter invited one of her friends to come along with us for the day. By the end I had my panorama and everyone had had an enjoyable day around the court and church.
