Christ Episcopal Church Bell Tower & Steeple

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 12 November 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Christ Episcopal Church, built in 1888, is Richardsonian Romanesque architecture with Gothic features - pointed arches over the doorways, large front window and openings in the bell tower. The bell tower rises 120 feet and houses one eighteen-hundred pound bell cast in Troy, New York.

The church's steeple was re-roofed this past year in copper cladding, basking here in the early morning sunlight.

First time I've seen what fresh copper cladding looks like before the elements have changed its appearance.

Excellent detail in the stonework and the blue sky makes a nice background.

I like the way you isolated the steeple against the sky. The sun seems to be low in the sky providing soft, warm light. Well done.
