This is a shot of the leftovers from Creake Abbey in Norfolk.
I love this so much about the UK: they just leave buildings to crumble down instead of clearing it.
The abbey was built in 1206 and extended in the next two centuries. When a plague wiped out all the people who lived there except for the abbot, who was the only survivor.
When he died in 1506 the building was left into decay.
We spent a wonderful afternoon in this place - there were hardly any people around. So lots of time I could just lay in the grass and take pictures from all kind of different angles.
The problem is that it is hard to make a picture from a ruin work. Luckily we had the ever changing Norfolk sky as a backdrop, but during processing the image I turned it into a monotone. It seems just better to work with the stones, the textures and the architecture.
