Photographer's Note

St Martin de Patrimonio.

I had already posted a sight like this one, framed differently.
Here, I adjusted the balance of the white on "tungstene", which gives this pure blue.

"Built on an eminence in the medium of the plain of Patrimonio, the church St Martin is the first building which attracts the eye when one arrives in Nebbiu by the road of the collar of Teghime. The walls of the building have the characteristic not to be covered with coating. The church thus appears very of ochre stone with visible good the holes which were used to install the scaffolding during its construction. It goes back to 1653 but probably trés replaced a former building having the same term of which there remain unfortunately nothing. The monument was altered in XIXeme century the bell-tower was elevated. The interior presents polychrome marble a furnace bridge, panels on wood of XVIeme, the Italian painted decorations of XIXeme. It should be noted that there is a drawing of J Daubigny whose title is "New church of Patrimonio" which seems to still represent it in construction and gone back to January 1773 being in the Louvre in the cabinet of the drawings under number 27." drawn from http://perso.wanadoo.fr/histoire.du.nebbiu/monu12.htm.
