Award Shortlist

Hi all, thank you for the lovely comments and a big shout out to Kate and Colleen for there lovely user awards.

The Church of St Mary and St Finnan is situated in one of the most picturesque and historically significant areas in the Highlands; standing at the head of Loch Shiel, where Charles Edward Stuart raised his standard before the gathered clans. The church is a silent witness to a yet more ancient arrival, that of the faith of St Finnan and the Celtic saints which has echoed in each generation since: an enduring testament to the living Catholic Faith of her people. The church is treasured by its parishioners and locals alike.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Father Andrew Barrett and the parishioners of the Church. I asked if there was any objections to me being at the Church at such a late hour. The response from them was so friendly and welcoming. So as I stood there between 10.30pm and midnight I felt very calm.

Working in just about total darkness was a new concept for me and hope I have done the stunning Church proud. There will be one more post from this location and both images will be shared with the parishioners.

have a great Sunday night.....................

Your narrative is so informative........I had no idea this Church existed, and as you say in such a delightful and picturesque setting. And captured at this time of day with it floodlit you have a very attractive image, showing the building off to full potential.
