one cloudy afternoon

 I am a frequent visitor to the Benedictine abbey on Monte Cassino, so try to take different photographs each time I am there.  Another nook, a different light on the mosaics... there is always something new to focus on.  But this visit a week or so ago was a very atmospheric one.  It was a stormy afternoon, but the weather mostly held out for us.

At this time of the year it is unusual to get these shots with no people in them.  This one (above) is looking in to the Benefactor's cloister from the top of the main stairs in the beautiful Bramante cloister. 

And outside the end of the vast building is obscured by cloud.

My subsequent visit a few days later was very different.  It will be the next post.
