I have taken hundreds of church photos, so picking a "best" would be a challenge. There are a few that instantly come to mind, not because they were my "best", but because of what they mean to me.

For example, one of my all-time favorite churches is a small Episcopal church in Jacksonville, FL. This church is more than 150 years old, as I recall, and was moved from its original location in the wilderness, by barge and then truck, to its present location.

Some of my favorite churches are in Canada, like St. John's Anglican Church in Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia. The village itself is very special to me, and the photo of the small church on a very foggy morning brings back good memories.

Another great memory is from Newfoundland's most westerly point, Cape Anguille. Since 1914, the Holy Trinity Anglican Church has held regular services for the hardy, sea-faring people of that harsh land. Plain on the outside, I found its interior to be very beautiful in its elegant simplicity.

Very nice shots sparker1, yes there are a lot of nice churches here in Nova Scotia. I really like the one in Cheticamp. Gotta get a pic of that.
Thanks for adding your little explanations of the shots.

One of my big disappointments was having lost many photos of Nova Scotia, including lots of churches and a few lighthouses, when a hard drive failed before I backed up the most recent images. I spent over $500 at data recovery labs trying to recover those pictures, to no avail.

Here are a variety of photos of churches in or near Loudoun County, Virginia.

1. St. Stephen the Martyr in Middleburg, VA. Interesting tidbit about this church is that when it was being built in the early 1960's, President Kennedy was spending some weekends in Middleburg. The Secret Service was able to influence some changes in the design. The confessional in this church is bulletproof. The windows let light through, but don't let you see individuals inside.

2. A view of part of St. Peter's in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia.

3. Another view of St. Peter's

4. A side view of St. Peter's with some other Harper's Ferry buildings.

5. St. Mary's in Petersville, Maryland.

6. and finally the statue of Our Lady of Hope in front of the parish of the same name in Potomac Falls, Virginia.

Jay, I loved your shots from Sedona and Tucson. I thought about including those, as well, but glad I didn't.
