Serra d'Ossa has been inhabited by the Order of the Hermits of St. Paul for many centuries. Devoted to poverty, they have built the old Convent of St. Paul, that is now a hotel, but they have left other traces in the mountain. This is a very small hermitage that can hardly be noticed, as it is really small and disguised by the vegetation. And getting close is even harder. Inside, it's a very humble and small place that is now completely abandoned. This is the window, I'll try to post a photo of the inside later.

An interesting view and also a well composed picture. A diagonal lines divides the picture in two part, one blue and one brownish. A well chosen POV.

It looks as this eremites house was carved out of the rock itself. Interesting upwards viewpoint that gives a great contrast between the well illuminated house and the superb tree and sky in the back.
have a great sunday

It looks like a losing battle against nature here, every nook and cranny is becoming the roots of some plant, and that always spells destruction. A beautiful shot of this little place, again if these walls could talk. The colors are striking, and the cloud formations are amazing too, its almost as if they are a spiritual connection to the plants on the roof, which are rising slightly higher than their physical forms allow.
I do hope you post a shot of the inside too, I would love to see that.

J'aime beaucoup cette contre plongée. Une belle utilisation de ce ciel parfait comme arrière plan. J'aime la netteté de l'image et la belle saturation des couleurs.

The abandoned hermitage sits amisdt the craggy rocks. Good composition in a diagonal with the blue sky offering a fine contrast. The tree is a good addition in the frame...
