photoblog image Arch, St.Albans Abbey

Arch, St.Albans Abbey

The final picture in this short series of five religious buildings I have stored away in my Miscellaneous file is this one, taken in one of the side aisles in St.Albans Abbey.

This really is a magnificent building and when we visited a few years ago it was the first time I had been here since I was a child and of course I had forgotten how lovely it is.

They have their own website at http://www.stalbanscathedral.org.uk/index1.htm but if you are ever in the area, and it is only a short run off the M1 down the M10 to St.Albans, it is well worth a visit, and , for the ladies, there is a really good market in the town centre on Saturdays, plus of course lots of Roman remains in the Verulamium Park and Museum details of which are here http://www.stalbansmuseums.org.uk/Sites/Verulamium-Museum

Have a nice weekend everybody, back on Monday.

Nice use of selective colour Brian.
It has a christmas feel to it.smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, it was taken in early January and I think the plant is one of those Poinsettia's you get at Christmas time.
Have a good weekend yourself Brian. I've enjoyed this trawl through your miscellaneous files!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, the miscellaneous stuff continues next week. Enjoy the weekend.
Hmm, we are all tempted to play with the spot colour, Brian, so I forgive you now. No offence really. Enjoy the weekend.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, have a good weekend yourself.
I will be in St Albans next month and you have inspired me to pay the Abbey another visit. Nice shot Brian.

A fine shot, Brian. I like the selective colouring very much. The reds of the flower really stand out.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, tis the season for these plants, Poinsettia's so I believe.

It looks very Gothic, your treatment of the picture seems to emphasis it. Nice
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie, the whole Abbey is a magnificent building.
excellent use of selective colouring
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush although this is as taken not a colour pop.
