    I'd say that goes beyond kinda run down. More like a completely stripped shell. Looks a bit like a Hollywood facade.

    More photos here .


    Tricky to get a decent shot of the Abbey as there are trees and harsh lighting most of the time ...

    Around the back side of the Abbey are wire security screen covered windows. One had a sizable gap towards the bottom just big enough to stick the Nokton 25mm F0.95 into - the other interior shots have a "hazy" look due to the security mesh.

    The interior shot was throught a window just to the left of frame. My fuzzy interior shot is from a wondow around the corner.

    Maybe you mean the detail over the entrance ... yeah, the shadows and angles were calling to me!

    Sitting on top of the Browning monument admiring the view (maybe just soaking up the sun).
