  1. It is a beautiful abbey and an old tree. I love trees and this one looks like our sycamore but it is what we call a London Plane Tree. Your photos are really crisp, clean and filled with the beautiful tones and textures you guys are famous for.

  6. Thanks for this tour through a very beautiful abbey. Your shots are stunning. I don't think I would have wanted to live in it, though… places like this can be bone-chilling cold! Thanks for your sweet words today, Léia! Beso!

  7. As fotos são tão lindas que parecem um sonho ! A árvore é maravilhosa, olhando a foto não dá pra imaginar o tamanho, porque 6 m de largura é imensa demais !
    Meu álbum picasa do blog já esgotou ! E tive que tirar fotos que vão desaparecer do blog para dar mais espaço a novas fotos. Nem imaginava que isso pudesse acontecer, mas tenho que me controlar e colocar menos fotos. Por isso não aparece a foto do meu perfil.

  8. You have captured very well the architectural beauty of this abbey. I really like the various photos of parts of the abbey and then the shot of the entire structure…they all fit together so well.

    Your photos are exposed perfectly, sharp, and a paean to your photographic skills!
