Celts and Vikings


St Adamnan’s Church (Lonan Old Church), Isle of Man. October 2015.

Originally called Keill-Ny-Traie (Chapel by the Shore), the site dates back to the 5th century and has 9 Celtic crosses in the grounds. The trees are magnificent and it’s a fabulous spot for wildlife as it’s located remotely in the middle of the countryside. I’m guaranteed to see the first snowdrops and daffodils of the new year at this spot.

The photograph was taken during a foggy, Halloween afternoon walk. I’ll be honest, I didn’t hang around for the light to fade further.

      Thanks Carol. No I didn’t shoot this image in black & white. I did take some of this location with my film camera using b&w film but I’ve not sent them off to be developed yet. Jackie

    What a lovely photo. We have moved a lot of snowdrops into our yard (some bought from the store and many more given as gifts from a friend). You will have to share your spring photos of this same place.
