Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Older than 50 Years

Here’s a sepia toned image of the vaulted crypt below the ruins of Fountain’s Abbey (founded in 1132, it’s a little over 50 years old!), taken one rainy day a few years ago:

  1. Very spooky, Sue. I would need someone to hold my hand to walk down there. 🙂

  2. Fascinating, very fascinating

    – and a bit more than 50 years old… 😀

  3. Fountains Abbey is a very atmospheric place, and great for photos. It has been a very long time since I visited, but your shot has captured it well Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. 1132…… I love history and would love to see in person those buildings. So thank you for sharing!! great shot 🙂

  5. Love sepia…and the older the better! Gorgeous photo Sue…

      Sheer luck, it was a pretty miserable day, but every now and again the clouds lifted a tad, and there was a bit of light filtering into the crypt

  6. Oh do I appreciate your perspective on this photo. I bet you got some marvelous photos 😀 Wonderful entry.

    • Sue

      Glad you like this, Cee 🙂 I don’t have a lot of images of Fountains because it was such a lousy day, and I was trying to stay dry!

    What a great shot! Love the mood it sets, even though you say it wasn’t scary!

  8. Oh we went to Fountains abbey a few days ago, I love this crypt !

  9. Love it. A great perspective with just the right amount of lighting to see forms and keep the mystery.

  10. a place to get lost! Wonderful!

  11. Gorgeous, Sue, but wouldn’t like to walk there alone at night.
