photoblog image Arch, Croxden Abbey

Arch, Croxden Abbey

I featured a series of three photographs of the ruins of Croxden Abbey, near Uttoxeter, in May, and this is one that slipped through the net when I compiled the earlier set.

It is a very quiet place to visit on a nice afternoon and is looked after by English Heritage.

Further details can be found at http://www.bbc.co.uk/stoke/360/croxdenabbey/index.shtml

This was well worthy of inclusion, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, I think it works quite well in B&W.
Well I'm glad you found it Brian as it is a nice composition and well suited to b&w
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, it's an extra to the three I posted in May of this ruin.
Thank you Brian: looks like the base of a cross outside
Brian Walbey: It could well be the base of a cross Chris, thanks for your comment.

The tree is nicely framed by the archway. This has a slightly pinkish tinge on my monitor.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, you might be right about the pink twinge although it is very slight, if at all, on my monitor.
Very nice picture Brian. I like the tree's framing!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I took it from this angle so the tree filled the arch rather than just leave a bare sky.

I can feel that quiet Brian.
Brian Walbey: It was very quiet Ellie, just Maureen and me, plus a chap doing some watercolour painting. Thanks for your comment.
