"Fade Away"
Fade Away - Tynemouth Priory Infrared
Tynemouth Priory, in Northumberland, 
England. The castle walls surround the 
remains of this Benedictine priory founded 
c. 1090 on a Saxon  monastic site. Legend
has it that the ruins are  haunted by Olaf, a Viking, 
who was wounded during a raid and tended to
by the Monks. He joined the order and rose to 
 become prior. Olaf's brother was killed during 
 another Viking raid on the priory . It is said
that Olaf died of grief while praying
in the chapel.

This print won a gold medal in the "from here to
infinity" contest!
