The countryside around Ireland features a variety of ruined buildings; castles, abbeys, churches, and on many occasions, those less romantic such as ruined farmhouses.
This particular little farmhouse is situated about 8 miles outside the town of Trim, Co Meath, and is a testament to those who tried, but did not succeed in conquering the land.

La nature a repris son droit sur les vestiges de cette ancienne demeurs.C'est une image que j'aime beaucoup avec ces vieilles tôles rouillées et cette végétation qui a déjà bien pris place sur le toit.

and the ruins can be nice,

the old ruins make a good subject,there is lots of interest with tumbled down walls and clinging ivy.
This was once a home and safe haven,seems such a shame but I guess that`s history.

una bella fotografia di questo casolare colonico che però è una dura denuncia sociale dell'abbandono e rinuncia a lavorare la terra.
Queste rovine sono un monito della crisi che è in atto in tutta l'Europa.

Enormément d'informations sur cette photo..j'aime la végétation qui reprend ses droits, les couleurs rouille et la palette de couleur qui encadre le sujet principal.

Très intéressante cette vielle maison, dont l'abandon ne date pas d'hier. Elle a sûrement eu des plus beaux jours mais aujourd'hui elle fait le bonheur des photographes. Excellente prise de vue et qualité d'image . Le bel éclairage nous fait bien voir tous les détails et la végétation qui s'en est emparée. Parfait rendu des couleurs.
Toutes mes félicitations,

Hello Noel - A wonderful subject so full of detail which has been well captured. Once a home and now sadly a testament to the failed efforts of its past inhabitants. Heartbreak and sadness, a forlorn mood. Warm regards Rosemary

خانه ای که روزی صفا و خوشبختی در ان وجود داشت ولی اکنون بصورت ویرانه در امده
جالب با ریشه های گیاهان در سقف
وضوح بسیار خوب و مدیریت نور
There was joy and happiness in the house that day, but now come into the ruins
Interestingly, plants with roots in the ceiling
Very good sharpness and light management

A sad building, but an interesting photo with beauiful range of tone and colour.

Today I also posted a picture of the old cottages, but in slightly better condition. It must have had an interesting building, someone had once lived, now a ruin. People grow old and die, the houses too. a sad sight.
Great photo, it reminds us of the transience.

This is pure Ireland, so beautifully photographed and presented to us. I love these old houses, that are sadly getting rarer and rarer. So your photo, apart from being very good and attractive, is an important historical document. Amazing colours, textures and a great Point of View. Congrats.
Have a good weekend

Boa noite Noel
Fantastic photo. Perfect point of view. I love this kind of photos. Congratulations.

Hello Noel. I love these old houses in decaying. Such scenes have a morbid charm. On the condition of the house you can see the passage of time. . And you can see how nature reclaims everything. Rgds, Wolfgang.

This is a wonderful image of this terribly run down & decaying old farmhouse - I bet it was so cute in its hey day!!!
The colours are varied & interesting all the wonderful hues one would expect from age...
I just love everything about it - well done Noel!!!

Well, they may not have conquered the land but they sure left behind and interesting and viable photo opportunity. Old ruins and vacant structures often seem to make for some of the best photos. Certainly not something you'd want to inhabit, at least in this state anyway, but it does make for some amazing textures and rustic colors. The branches reaching out from both the top and bottom of the roof feel like some sort of life form trying to grab hold of this place, claiming it as its own. Smart idea to take advantage of what most probably see as nothing more than a pile of trash. Perfectly exposed and sharp detail. I bet you could get a great deal on purchasing this "fixer-upper!" :) Really cool shot, nicely seen! Have a great day.

Good idea to present that ruin Noel, I like the plants growing on the roof
Excellent framing, pov and exposition

Great shot by you.. Superb composition with this abandoned hut.. Like the clouds in the sky.. Also good perspective and superb image quality too.. Very well done..
Good morning and wish you all the best..

Sometime the old ruined houses look very picturesque indeed. I am not expert, but my first idea usualy consists a plan of re-construction ;) But they often get out similar ruins and built something new.

I can't believe i missed this one in your gallery, I must have been blind!
looks like the house and the garden had a huge fight, and the garden won!
amazing to see how the house is overcome with vines or branches. Just goes to show how powerful mother nature is, as it always wins in the end.

1st of all, Merry Xmas and Happy New Year 2014 to you and family!!!
Have not be active lately
How is your new camera?
Seems like you are making full use of it.
Exceptionally captured deserted house with tree branches protruding out from this building.
Very sharp image with balance color tone!

oh, three hearts for this one, noel!
i've never seen a house or cottage with so much exuberant (albeit scruffy) personality! it's just brimming with character in a lovely way. it seems to be losing its fight with nature, but that's just part of its grand appeal to me. completely charming, and caught from a lovely angle. well done :)
