Lindisfarne

Lindisfarne (1 of 1)

The ruins of Lindisfarne Priory are situated on Holy Island, about one mile off the coast of Northumbria in the north east of the UK.  The island is linked to the mainland by a tidal causeway.

The monastery was founded in 634AD by the Irish monk St Aidan, who had been sent to Northumbria from Iona off the west coast of Scotland at the request of King Oswald of Northumbria.  Lindisfarne became the base for Christian evangelising in the north of England and beyond

The monastery was attacked and plundered many times by marauding Vikings

This is a silhouette of a modern  statue of St Aidan (by Kathleen Parbury) located in St Mary’s churchyard, Holy Island

It was here that the famous illustrated manuscript known as the Lindisfarne Gospels was created.

Now there’s a surprise!

This first picture is from a series of cloud photos taken as potential alternative background material for pictures with a bland sky and in need of a little interest.

 

When I transferred the image to the computer I discovered that it included something I had not noticed with the naked eye!

Abstract 239

 

I toyed with adding a subtitle such as ‘The Montagues and the Capulets’ or ‘The Jets and the Sharks’ but resisted the temptation!
