Skywatch #66


Nendrum, NI, originally uploaded by duopastorale.

Nendrum Monastery, was founded with the blessing of Saint Patrick in the sixth century. The ruins are on a beautiful island accessible by bridges, with dry stone walls, heavenly views and a guide and site display. The remains of this important pre-Norman monastery include three concentric enclosures (stone walls), with ruined church, round tower stump, foundations of other buildings, sundial, cross-slabs.

Ruins need a brooding sky, I think. The light on the stones and the brilliant green grass is decpetive.
