Artist's Description

This is a section of the fantastic Abbey on Holy Island, Lindisfarne in Northumberland. This is a magical place and one that I wish to return and visit soon. I love the textures and shape of the very old and exposed columns. I chose to shoot it in sepia mode to bring out it’s age. Some information about the priory: "Lindisfarne Priory on Holy Island was one of the most important centres of early Christianity in Anglo-Saxon England. It is still a place of pilgrimage today, the dramatic approach across the causeway adding to the fascination of the site.

St Aidan founded the monastery in AD 635, but St Cuthbert, prior of Lindisfarne, is the most celebrated of the priory’s holy men. Buried in the priory, his remains were transferred to a pilgrim shrine there after 11 years, and found still undecayed – a sure sign of sanctity.":http://www.holy-island.info/englishheritage/lin...
