FIFE GOTHIC

This fantastical, Gothic inspired chapel is located on a hilltop 2 miles south-east of Newport-on-Tay. It’s not the sort of architecture you might expect to come across in Fife, however, I was aware of the Leng Memorial Chapel from having photographed a wedding there back in May 2002. The Chapel is relatively tiny, even for a Scottish country church, but I remember being struck by its Gothic style of architecture; and the extraordinary feeling of light inside the building, which was quite unusual in all my years of experience photographing weddings inside Scottish churches.

According to my internet research, the Chapel was ……….”built by Sir John Leng in 1895-97 as a memorial to his first wife, Lady Leng and designed by T Martin Cappon in a 13th Century French Gothic Style, with the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris as the main inspiration.”

These images were shot on my Nikon D3, which I had specially converted for infrared capture back in 2015. I consider that the infrared treatment along with the sympathetic post-processing techniques have added to the Gothic feel that I was trying to convey here.

As always, I welcome constructive critique and comments of my images, thanks.
