Pleasure of Ruins / 2

This time, we’re off to Bayham Abbey, in East Sussex. Now owned by English Heritage, it is a picturesque place. I find that I didn’t take any images that give an idea of the scale of the remaining buildings, but concentrated on a few parts that took my eye.

as usual, click on any image to start the slideshow:

  1. Once magnified , you can notice how great looks the contrast between light and shade….
    Just beautiful!

  2. The black and white treatment certainly conveys the age of those ruins, Sue. Nicely done.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Great captures of those ruins. You’ve caught the arches beautifully and all those leading lines take us right into the ruins.

  4. The textures become subjects unto themselves. These remind me of the old travel postcards.

  5. Not part of Black and White Sunday then, but they could be. Happy Saturday, Sue! 🙂 🙂

  6. Spectacular ruins, their state well and truly justified by time, unlike Havana’s. my eye was drawn to the flower shape down low in the last one, hinting at the shape of a rose window. The colour you have chosen is perfect. Dame Rose would be keen to meet you.

      Oh, you do make me smile, Meg! As to that flower shape, I was fascinated by it….no idea why it would have been low on that wall. Perhaps no significance, merely decorative.

  7. This looks somewhere worth visiting. Most English Heritage sites aren’t up to much, we’ve found. Not far from Tunbridge Wells, a place we have yet to visit too. I like the processing – Nik perhaps?
