The White Church
Lens: DA 18-55 WR Camera: K70 Photo Location: Milltown Co. Kerry ISO: 1600 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: PenPusher, 12-01-2017, 03:34 AM

There are the ruins of two old churches on the Killorglin Road just outside Milltown Co. Kerry, the well constructed in Augustinian Abbey built of Limestone around 1200 and partially destroyed by Oliver Cromwell and this one the White Church built of local fieldstone (sandstone), nobody seems to know when it was built or by whom or even why its called the White Church, it was already reported as being in ruins in 1757 and even less remains now, it was used by the Protestant Church of Ireland and is surrounded by tombs of the local gentry as well as ordinary graves of both Catholic and Protestant. It is the most eyrie place and I would not like to be there on a dark night.

I will post more photos later in the Kit Lens Club, I was expecting rain and it was the only lens with me.

Shots of ruins hold a lot of interest for many people and this shot is no exception.
