St Bean (720 AD) was grandson of the King of Leinster, Ireland, and preached among the Picts in this area. There has been a church on this site since those times. The present church is a 13th-century building, renovated in 1927 but retains many of the original features including a 'lepers' squint' (now glazed). There is a Pictish Cross under the north wall which is evidence of c. 1,300 years of Christian worship on the site.

N.B leper’s squnt = a small window in the exterior wall of some medieval churches through which lepers are believed to have viewed the service being conducted at the altar.

I had to battle with with noise due to a small censor on my Canon G12. ISO1600 for the interiot shots gave me a tonne of noise - hence definition is not what I would like -?

Thanks for your kind comment though :-D

Tripod, Martin! If you take the time to travel to a great building like that, you can take the time to carry one with you! ; )

LOL! When you are approaching 90 you don't carry anything you don't have to. That's also why I use a camera I can slip into a jacket pocket.

Then how about a 1/4"-20 screw socket in the head of your cane? It shouldn't take you more than 2 or 3 days to figure out how that would work? ; D

I have thought of that too. But I use telescopic walking poles for stabilization. But the have substantial rubber handles which cannot be adapted in the way you suggest. Walking canes are too short for me.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Got it in one! As someone who started photography in 1938, gear was almost irrelevant.

Thanks for your kind words.

I have rarely if ever ventured into this section the past couple years. HDR is usually way over done for my taste.

I am loving the work here though! Lovely! And thank you for the history lesson as well. This was fascinating.
