Ruins of the 14th century church in Skog socken, Hälsingland. The church was abandoned at a point, due to water damage, the present day ruins are a restoration of the remaining building blocks. It sits on the shores of lake Bergviken which is fed by the river Ljusnan. The area belongs to the ancient Eyskógamörk - ÖDMÅRDEN - a deep and dark forest which served as an ancient border between northern and southern Sweden. The fabled forest was feared for its treacherous terrain, bandits, thieves and wild beast, such as wolves and bears. Plenty of fables and folktales have naturally sprung out of shear awe of that most ancient of places.
Unfortunately, Ödmården scarcely exist in modern day, after centuries of agriculture and forestry - the area is still covered in woods, just not what you might imagine the Swedish version of "Mirkwood" to be. Read, read and learn, I live around the area and know pitifully little about it, schools do not teach enough local history!!!

“I need you. I bought a f*cking church!” With this blunt text message to his friend, architect Carlos Garmendia, Tas Careaga kicked off a three-year design adventure. “Back in 2016, I was looking for some land with an old house on it,” says Tas, who runs a small creative agency. Responding to an Internet advertisement for “land with building in ruins on it,” @tascareaga drove about a half-hour west from Bilbao to Sopuerta, a town nestled in the rolling hills and thick forests of Spain’s northern Basque country. There, he encountered the remains of a small church on the side of a winding road near the edge of a deep, green ravine. “When I arrived, I absolutely fell in love,” he says. Abandoned since the late 1970s, the church was in need of serious repair. The roof had caved in and vegetation had thoroughly invaded the structure. Built in the mid 16th century, with some add-ons in the form of an 18th-century bell tower and sacristy, the church had obvious archaeological and historical value. This is not a restoration. For @garmendiacorderoarquitectos, the mission was to “show that ruins can have value” by preserving the original building without hiding the effects of time. Tas wanted a functional space for living, working, and entertaining. They landed on a design that kept as much of the existing stone structure as possible, shoring it up and inserting a contemporary living space while retaining the atmosphere of a romantic ruin.

~A land without ruins is a land without history~

I’m so tired mentally after the first day of real lessons😅 It’s very nice to get to the stable after though, it really gives my socialbatteries or whatever a chance to reload🙃

St Paul’s Church is a former Portugese Chapel that was built in 1521 AD by Duarte Coelho. ✨
Today, the beautiful ruins of the church sits on the top of St Paul’s Hill and is one of the iconic historical landmark in Malacca. .

All I could think of while doing this edit was a conversation I had with one of my dearest friends.....I believe God will open doors and keep those doors open that I’m meant to go through. And with that, it’s up to me to work hard to get through them. All while those doors that are meant to be closed, he’ll help me to do just that, close them. I can’t waste my time on what’s not for me, but I can learn within the process.

Found this Church ⛪ ruins completely by hasard when the night was falling down on "Toomemagi" (meaning Cathedral's hill in Estonian...I should have guess I would find something like that up there! 🤓)
.
Tartu Cathedral (Tartu toomkirik in estonian ) is a former Catholic church in Tartu 🇪🇪. The building is now an imposing ruin overlooking the lower town. In the small part of it that has been renovated is now located the museum of the University of Tartu, which the university also uses for major receptions.

I was on my way to Walsingham and happened to stumble across this ruin. Situation on a mound on a Sharp country road bend in the road. There's no parking and you have limited access, which made me want to shoot this even more.
.
When I got back I researched this bad boy, this is all that remains of the little village of Egmere, a village wiped out by the plague in 15something or other. The church of St Edmund is Norman by origin and the only thing remaining if the village.
.
Just as I got a good position to take the shot, a devilish looking storm arm crawled across the scene. I think it looks moody and perfect.
