Picture taken at Llanthony Priory, walking around the ruins of the Priory it was a slightly misty day, the sun broke through and cast a stream of light on the grass.
Ian, this is a fascinating and evocative image. The repeated shapes of the arches are inspiring amidst the angular rubble. And the hint of green in the sun lit grass gives a muted warmth to the beautiful composition. Lovely!
Wow fantastic words, thank-you. Ian.
Thank you for the kind comments. I only had three images that were of use from that visit, the lighting wasn’t very moody but fortunately the angle of the sun was just right for the windows.
Thank you for the kind comment, only had about three images that were any good that day, the lighting wasn’t very moody but luckily just the right angle for the windows.
Oh, neat! I love it when the light falls through the windows of ruins… Alas it often seems to be a dull day when I visit these places!! 🙂
Thank you for your kind comment.
hi, i have just found your photos and they are amazing. I take a Duke of Edinburgh group to camp at this site each year and always get an hour on my own to wander around and love this area. Its a great place to go with your camera. Thanks for sharing.
Hi sorry for the late reply. Thanks for the comment, it is a beautiful area, I try to get up to Llanthony two or three times a year usually in the autumn and spring, the weather conditions can be INTERESTING and change so rapidly. Duke of Edinburgh award must keep you busy, what sort of activities do they do in that area.
We normally take a silver group that way for their three day/two night final. We can link up camp site with good day walks. We stay at Llanthony for our 2nd night of camping. I must say the weather is very interesting. We were where in June time and can remember having to walk with a group all holding hands because of the wind and the rain. Didn’t think i would be wearing my winter clothing kit in the summer time! Thanks for replying.
