[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just across the Pirita River from Tallinn , 6 kms from the city lie the majestic ruins of St Bridget's convent.The largest convent in Old Livonia , St Bridget's was founded in 1407 as part of a Swedish religious order and functioned until its destruction by Ivan the Terrible 's forces in 1577. What remains today are the massive Gothic facade and walls of the main building , foundations, cellars and a cemetery full of old crosses .This is an absorbing site .Thank you for looking ,
Carol

hi Carol

Interesting POV of the cemetery view ending with a convent facade although blocked by the tree in front of it but a good choice of vertical composition with good depth.

tfs, bill
