Simply to thy cross I cling

I’ve been to Eyam a good many times, and one of my favourite things in the village is this carving in the graveyard.  On it are carved the words “Simply to thy cross I cling”.  It is actually a very tricky item to photograph, and I’ve never been 100% happy with any shot I’ve taken of it.  The carving tends to get lost in the background… or the background becomes a distraction… or using fill-in flash you get a very flat image… or you can’t read the words on the cross… or… as in this visit my lens started playing-up!  This was my best effort this time… as you can see I’ve had to do some photoshop work on it to get anything from it.
