Hi CM, This is an excellently composed and detailed photo. The different red colour tones and the fading green show the age of the bell. The craftmanship of it is very impressive V

Nicely captured, CM. The bell has a deformation of the lower rim ... perhaps there's a story there!

A colorful bell and probably very difficult to cast for the raised characters. V
