Weekly Photo Challenge: Through


These photos I took at Timoleague Abbey in Ireland are perfect for this week’s theme of “through.” When I approached the abbey from the outside, what impressed me most was how the windows framed the headstones of the graveyard inside the ruin. With many windows and many holes in the ruined walls, Timoleague was a perfect frame for photographing the abbey and the surrounding countryside. If some of these photos look familiar, it’s because I used them previously for the photo theme “windows.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows from the inside out


Timoleague Abbey ruins was a study in windows. The windows are what first caught my eye when we stopped there. I’ve picked some of my favorites for this photo challenge, all looking from the inside out.
