Yesterday was one of the most diffcult days of my whole life so Kerry and my grandchildren took me to Elgin Cathedral today to try to cheer me up a little.
The weather was gloriously sunny, although a bit sharp in the wind! I haven't been inside this majestic old cathedral ruins since my own children were around the ages my grandchildren are now.
The front entrance.
Life-size statue. It looks as if it should belong on a giant's chessboard.
Tombs of long-forgotten men.
Skull carved into the wall in one of the buildings.
Light and shade.
Having a rest!
Beautiful sculpture on a tomb.
Kali, Saffron, Aaliyah and Cameron.
Yes, the sky really WAS this colour!
Aaliyah and Cameron.
Pillar and vaulted roof.
There are so many of these winged head carvings on the uprights of grave slabs in the cemetery that surrounds the cathedral. There are three in this shot alone!
Go directly to .....
This is such a stylised skull. Very unusual.
