6th Century Church

Uploaded by: Cowgazer

Monday August 11, 2008

Gwynedd, United Kingdom

Caption: For thanksgiving I thought I would share the church of St Bueno first built around the 6th century, to the left of the alter is a Lepers window so the aflicted could watch the sacrament from outside. The church is dressed for a wedding, complete with sweet smelling rushes on the floor. It has no electricity and the most restful place on earth.

Oh my, am I glad minnesotamom and nanapoo commented on this 2008 photo today, else I would have never seen it. This is so beautiful, but so much more than beautiful can describe. The details that emerge from the shadows to piece together the scene create an exceptional image! Thank you for sharing, and for giving us some information on the church. Wish I could smell the "sweet smelling rushes" as they are walked upon, as I now wonder where the practice of walking on them came from.

About Cowgazer


I am Peter, brought up in the center of Manchester, UK. But was a square peg in a round hole there, worked 33 years as stockman in dairy farming then made redundant. Luckily got a job managing a garden nursery for a couple of years, but had to leave as tenancy came to an end. Couldn't find work so relocated to Wales and am now a self-employed gardener, great move, good things come out of hard times. Digital tech has made photography affordable to me and I love it, compliments my walking and Birdwatching. At present on a steep learning curve, new things are always good, stretch your mind and keep you sane-ish.
