On a recent drive through the horse country of Hunt Valley my eyes were once again drawn to this stunningly beautiful church under construction. I've passed it quite a few times during the building of it but decided to stop for a photograph or two this time

Double Church Steeples

I am a big fan of architecture so when I came across these wonderful steeples on a sunny day, there was not much to consider. :-) These two are part of a larger scene which I will show in a future post, but for now I wanted to show them in their individual beauty.

Each of these could easily serve as an outstanding steeple alone for any church. My guess is that the green steeple is much older and perhaps the original one for the building below it. When I see the worksmanship that has been put into things like this, and consider the fact that this all took place so far off the ground, it is truly amazing.
