Tintern, Fall 2018

I’ve been wanting to get a very particular shot of the Abbey at Tintern, at the peak of the autumn colours, bathed in sunlight, with blue skies, for years now. This marks the fourth time of trying this year (first two were too early, third and fourth both with the wrong light/skies) and it’s perfect, so much that I almost want to cry about it. To have finally captured it how I’ve always wanted to is practically a weight lifted, achievement unlocked.

I got up this morning and saw the mix of stormy but bright skies and practically rushed out the door. As well as of the Abbey, I decided to take a little time out in the town too. It’s a beautiful place and it’s easy to see why it’s so popular in summer, but this is definitely my favourite season for it.
