photoblog image Gisborough Priory

Gisborough Priory

The priory was founded in 1119 and was home to Augustinian monks. The large church was demolished after the reformation but the huge east gable wall still stands.

It was the sky that I wanted to capture in this picture - an unusual cloud formation that enhances the remains of a beautiful building.

It's a magnificent scene, and I do so agree about the clouds being absolutely perfect smile
Pilgrim: Thanks Ellie. Yes, it was an unusual cloud formation so I had to grab the shot while it was there. Haven't seen anything like it since and I live only 20 minutes walk away from the Priory.

What an amazing capture, Pilgrim. I have never seen ruins of a priory like this. I like how you composed the pic to show the little structure through the main arch!
Pilgrim: Thanks Ginnie - I guess we do have a bit more history in the UK and there are numerous buildings like this that give good photo opportunities, but you have things in the US that we don't have and make equally good photo material.

welcome to shutter David, it's great to see some local scenes, all the best. mal
Pilgrim: Thanks for the welcome. This place is home for me - it doesn't get much more local than that. David.
