Brilliant photo very atmospheric and moody. This would make a lovely gothic poster. When i look at this photo i expect dracula to pop up from behind the gravestones. Well done.

Why is it so hard to add some of these to toursites? I have tried several times, on two different days, without luck. I really like this one--haunting, Gothic, beautiful.

Just joined the POE site and very glad I have....an awful lot of excellent photos. there is a phenominal amount of talent out there..... Love this pic. What would look like with a bit of photoshop??? A ghostly apparition at the top of the path or or Dracula-esque silhouette on the top of the abbey!!!! Go back to it and have a go...you never know. . .

Very interesting lighting in the foreground relative to the blackened sky. Special lighting used? Great either way.

This looks more like a painting than a photo. Maybe it's a picture of a photo?
Comment by Neil Willan(21st May 2013)
No it's a photo taken 3 times over at different exposures and then merged into a HDR photo via photomatix. Thanks for the comment though.

Random England fact:
Lincoln Cathedral was once officially the tallest building in the world for over 200 years, from 1311 (when the central tower was raised, surpassing the Great Pyramid of Giza which had held the record for almost 4000 years), until 1549 when the spire was blown down in a storm.
