More Monastery in the rain

Some time ago I posted a monochrome photo from the 12th Century Lyse Abbey outside Bergen. It was raining hard, and I have tried to convey the impression the deserted ruin gave me.

Bergen??? nei nå har han åpna mappa merket `Hellas` tenke nå jeg da, men sannerlig min hatt der tok jeg feil ja, var litt for!! frodig sjø... og jammen ta har dere litt historie på vestlandet der å ja :-))) he he

De ruinene i bakkant der Rune var jo bare et syn for guder, fik lyst til å fokusere litt nærmere der jeg...

Anne said...

Jodda, så det sjø, på litt nærmere hold. Tenk å vandre blant de søylene der npr solen skinner og det kasktes skygger da, det hadde sikkert også kunne blitt litt flott??

Tone said...

Ja, dette er en vakker plass, og her har jeg tatt mye bilder selv:-)
Fantastiske ruiner, rett og slett!

Dimple said...

Very beautiful, Rune. I can imagine the monks walking the cloister and drawing water from the well.

Du verden hva dere har å by på i Bergen, spennende saker det der.

This is a wonderful shot, RuneE. It provides a sense of wonder in me as if I expect some ethereal creature to come forth through the arches.

Marka said...

I like the composition. Would that happen to be a well?

Jeni said...

A little of this, a little of that -not necessarily things that seem to match up but I really liked this picture. Peaceful, pretty and yet -the pillar things in the background with the grasses all over -beautiful in a spooky, eerie kind of way. Anyway -it struck my fancy, that's for sure!

I liked your first pictures, I still like this one. I must admit I don't know if it comes from the talent of the photograph or the beauty of the place..Ü
I can't help thinking of Frodon, Gandalf and Aragorn...Some places on the world are really magic, and this place is one of them..

John said...

My preference is definitely for the earlier monochrome shot. The old stones and the wet really lend themselves to b&w. A good spot for more photos.

My mind wanders at historical places or old places. Who sat on the wall? Things like that. I can't imagine they would have been able to imagine me seeing the place they sat and I live here in Ohio and the wall is near Bergen.

Der skulle jeg likt å vært og fotografert.Tenk å ha sånt i Bergen da,trodde som Anne,at her skulle vi langt avgårde.Vakkert:)

Reader Wil said...

The mpression I get looking at this photo is one of great ancient times where a very old well was the only way to provide the monks with fresh water. I should love to hear the stories and legends that must have happened in the dim and distant past. Have a great day, Rune!

Amazing, Rune.
The mind boggles at the history and stories this photo could tell.

You've captured the atmosphere very well Rune!

Excellent ruins, and excellent photograph. I like it when nature starts to reclaim what man has created.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Well done, Rune! Empty, desolate, ancient - that's what the photo says to me.

Becky at Abbey Style said...

Monasteries. My favorite subject, especially the ruins. Now you've shown me ruins in the rain. Excellent.

GMG said...

Lovely place!!

Maria Berg said...

I want it to look like that in my garden and of course a lot of flowers to - I know it is old but maybe I can build something like that, MB
