The 13th C. Cistercian abbey at Tintern is one of my favourite locations and I am always looking for an opportunity to take a better photograph. On this particular morning I had a dental appointment in Caldicot, so, having only one car, I had to give my wife a lift to work. On my way to Caldicot I was passing through Tintern. The mist was thick and it was still quite dark. With a some time to kill I decided to visit my ‘old friend’ the Abbey. There it loomed from out of the mist, an ancient shell, a monolithic mausoleum of times past. Grabbing the camera I thought ‘here we go again’. Generally I ‘convert’ to monchrome, but the subtle and muted colours added to the mood. So. in colour they stayed.
