  1. Before I saw the caption, my immediate thought was this photo was taken at a monastery. Beautiful.

    • Thank you, Glynn.
      I think I took this picture around eight o’clock in the evening, having just returned from Compline in the Abbey chapel.

    • The summer light in Virginia is so beautiful. Mornings and evenings were truly glorious.

    • I don’t know if you ever watched the classic BBC TV series “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier..” starring Alex Guinness, many decades ago?

      The music played for the credits was composed for one of the main elements of Compline
