    I wasn't really out to shoot architecture that day, but the Abbey was too good to pass up.

    "Beautiful Ruins". Is the damage a result of WW-II?

    It fell into ruin after the 16th century, but at the end of the 19th century it became a protected site and has been maintained and partially restored since that time.

    These are beautiful. I'd really like to live nearby and go there often.

    It really is a beautiful location, and it was a fine day to be out shooting. There were a couple of newly-weds around with an entourage of photographers and familie.

    Did you take any pictures of the Newly Weds?

    We have a couple of locations that are favorites for wedding shots- but last year saw a bride and groom use an old Train Caboose for their shots. I got a couple.

    Didn't wanna mess with them and their expensive wedding photographers.

    So I just stuck to shooting the models we brought ;)
