Wordless Wednesday…… Another Favourite Place

Wales 14 2 _3254qqq-web1000x1500U-100

Location:-  Chirk Castle, Denbighshire,  Wales

Chirk Castle is described as a 13th century Fortress on the English-Welsh Border.  Built to control the uprisings of the Welsh Princes.  Today the grounds and gardens are rather serene and a far cry from the Castle original defensive roll.

Silent Sunday….Off to the Kirke

Saint Mary’s Church, Bergen, Norway

Many of the streets in Bergen are narrow, so when you turn a corner, the scale and bold frontage of Saint Mary’s Church does rather take you by surprise.  Origins are 12 century.  The architectural style is a mix of Gothic but mainly Romanesque, its bold white twin towers contrast well with the heavy stone.

A very different bold statement to that of Wells Cathedral featured in last Sundays post, but a similar generation and equally as dramatic and imposing .

Winter begins at the Loch…

Scot-9.5

Loch Cill Chriosd, Broadford, Isle of Skye

Cloud covers Beinn Dearg Bheag beyond the Loch.  Autumns reeds are still standing, a tranquil end of year scene on Skye.  Heavy frosts  will see the end of those reeds until next springs revival.  🙂
