Pleasure of Ruins / 6 Newark Priory

Time for another ruined abbey/priory. This time, Newark Priory. I have posted about this before, but I can’t find the post!

The priory is on private land, so no access, unfortunately. However, one can get photos from the tow path when armed with a telephoto lens, as I have done here…the priory is near the Way Navigations, close to Newark Lock. You just have to find angles from between the trees.

Some information on Wikipedia here.

Quite a romantic ruin, I think you would agree!

  1. The old photo look suits these well.

  2. Love the editing, Sue, which, as Sherry says (more or less), really enhances the “ruined” look. Being a lover of ruins, I think you for a great fix for the day. 🙂

  3. Echoing the other comments – lovely processing and yes, a very romantic looking ruin.

      Thanks, Jude…I thought Sepia and torn print frames worked for this – I have used it for some of the others in this series, and there will be more to come

  4. I enjoyed this visual journey through history, thank you. Your post processing allowed me to ease into an imagined past with a bit of wondering how one could move in a bit closer, undetected. Easter must be an photo op day.

  5. The second one is easily my favourite. Just something about the reflections and the mood. 🙂 🙂

  6. Beautiful ruins! I love your choice of editing. Very atmospheric.

Over to you...
