When I came walking in this chapel and was stunned by the beauty. This was also my first experience with a tripod, and other camera function as "supiriour automatic" on my Sony DSC HX200. After an hour we walked in some people who were working in the basement, and they "gently" told us to leave Now the monastry has been renovated into students homes, and the chapel is used for weddings and party's. 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: 7:
As promised, here's my report on "the bright saint"... It must have been one of my coolest explores from last year. At the time of the visit, this enormous monastery had been abandoned for a few years and even though there were many ideas what to do with it, till then they didn't really make a clear decision yet. We had the location on the list for a while, but were unable to find an entrance. Till one day we noticed some pictures starting to appear online. We quickly gathered our stuff and went back... One of the side-builings had a broken window, so obviously that was the starting point. However, since this place is huge, it took us a while to find the correct route... From building to building, over the roofs, thru very small windows and gaps till we eventually ended up on the second floor of the right building. Then, when we opened the door to the church, we were simply shocked by it's beauty... We stood there for a while, admiring the quietness and the awesomeness of this location. After a few minutes we grabbed our gear and started shooting... A little bit of history: This place was built in the beginning of the 19th century and was used till 2001. It expanded a couple of times till eventually the place became to small and they decided to move in 2001. At the moment they are rebuilding it, to make student rooms and some small apartments in the monastery. The church/chapel itself still didn't get a new purpose yet, but they are now investigating the possibilities to use it as a presentation and wedding venue.... Shortly after our visited this location became very popular and a few weeks they must have noticed something, as they properly closed all possible entries and added a shitload of camera's to protect the place, so unfortunately for us, its not possible anymore to do a revisit... Ok, enough said about this one, let's go on with the shots I managed to take here: 1# 2# 3# 4# 5# 6# 7# 8# 9# 10# 11# 12# 13# 14# 15# 16# 17# 18# Thanx for watching!!
