Clonmacnoise

Clonmacnois 1

I'm writing this late Friday night and we have to get up early Saturday for our flight home. No time to write. This is the ruins of Clonmacnoise Monastery and the adjacent modern cemetery. You could look it up.

I'm not sure anything can beat Celtic crosses, especially in black and white.

Don't you want to stay? You could camp out in the ruins, surrounded by the ghosts of monks long ago gone home.....Have loved the vicarious trip back to the Ould Sod with you...Thanks!

Very haunting image, especially in b/w. Well framed.

Even though it's well-kept very haunting indeed.

I especially like the second b&w. Really good tonality and incredibly moody.
