The greens here are just incredible and combined with the blue sky and grey stone of the ruined church, this makes a perfect picture. So Irish with the church in this setting, and the gravestones make a superb foreground interest.
Thanks as always for sharing your knowledge of these cool places, and your beautiful captures.
All the best

Interesting note with a chapter of the history of this place, so that these ancient ruins acquire greater significance, this splendid array of vivid colors that bring out the stones and give a beautiful chromaticism to the image.
A perfect colorful natural.
A very bright image with optimum clarity.
Have a nice weekend.
All the best.

Belle lumière sur les ruines du monastère, les pierres tombales, le tout entre le vert lumineux et le bleu du ciel

un luogo sacro molto antico e con tanta storia, purtroppo un pò malconcio.
Ottima composizione e ottimo taglio, forse un pò troppa saturazione.

Dear Arthur, these ruins and cemetery are many centuries old, I like that lemon green color combinated to the grey of the stones, a nice ruin to discover, high definition
a brillant picture, have a good afternoon

Good evening Arthur,
Ruins of the old monastery shown well under the bright daylight, and fine clarity.
The ancient cemetery in FG, probably from same era as the edifice, or a bit later in time, looks as spread around vast area around.
A piece of history enfolded from the note written.

a wonderful graphical description of the persistent ruins that evoke a long past era and its history. The panoramic frame and the perspective have created a subtle but attractive dynamism that's so well combined with the beautiful, bright, contrasting colours. The strong shadows dispersed all over the area are intriguing and significant. Despite the superb clarity and the powerful sunshine, the place still looks mysterious and fascinating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great month,

The colors in this photo are wonderful. It is predominantly a three color photo: Green, earth tones and blue. All three are well-saturated, the shallow light has enhanced their brilliance. The panoramic view from your wide angle lens is improved by your POV.

I know a very long time, Ireland is one of the most beautiful countries for landscape photographers, but a pity for me, I am no traveller, I shall there never coming.

Nice light and perfect sharpness.
These cares for perspective and depth.
Very well composition, lovely presentation. TFS.

nice the view of the old Franciscan friary now in ruins with the graves to complete perfect the whole scenery.
The brilliant light enhance the vivid colours as outline the ruins against the blue sky.

The ruins of the abbey surrounded by tombstones and the vivid greenery are typically irish . the perfect blue sky is less typical ;) But i suppose that tou have got a splendid july in Ireland , too .

You had a lovely day for this photograph!
The blue of the sky and the rich greens are lovely in tandem!
I like the fact that you have included the gravestones in the f/g; they always add a sense of atmosphere.
I wonder what it would have looked like if you had got right down on the ground, looking up at the gravestones and ruined arch. So easy to wonder when you're no longer there! Dam!
Have a lovely day,
