This is bliss for those who see the world with their hands.

Wow, that is beautiful. Diane

Such diversity in the stone. Wonderful.

That's a poet's dream!

An interesting blend of texture and colors and your photo gives the appearance of looking into a secret enclave.

A really beautiful photo. You know I'm a sucker for arches.

PPusa said...

Great composition! I tried to google about the place and the first entry was your blog...

Lois said...

What a great looking place to wander around in!

Sharon said...

This is beautiful! I'd love to explore here.

Quelle belle lumière ! On se sent devenir poète ...

So lovely. Reminds me of the Saints Grottos we learn about in school. Or what we picture in our minds anyway. MB

This does indeed look very, very old. Great photo!

LONG MESSAGE: I'm quite frustrated; cannot access my email account, comment on any blogs that don't allow anonymous visitors, nor access my Visual St. Paul blog. Lost all my addresses. Fortunately I had scheduled posts 'til mid-November sometime (but can't add to them with an explanation) because of surgery. Don't have time to start a new email account nor blog, but I'll be back. If you care to contact me in the meantime, I can be reached with another acct., tho: myhearthandhome@gmail.com

Fantastic capture, JM, as always! It's the texture and colors of the rocks that really fascinates me along with your superb composition! Would love to stroll through there! Gorgeous place! Enjoy your evening!

Cool.

Jarart said...

So beautiful!!

Cristóbal said...

Lovely! [That kind of architecture is based on wombs, so the name fits it perfectly].

Tommy Andre Nekkoy said...

This is a good photo - I like it a lot, and it inspires me - Well done

Photo Cache said...

what a beautiful spot.

Jacob said...

That must be what they call rough hewn rock...but you put together a great composition, leading us down the corridor to where the poet's reside!

Love this!

Irina said...

I have to touch these walls. So great perspective here.

joo said...

I love the name, and yes, the place looks very poetic:)

Randy said...

I can only imagine the history behind this place. Lovely!

T. Becque said...

Great framing! Love texture on that stone.

Kaori said...

I feel like I'm in a fairytale. Lovely.

Stickup Artist said...

This place is so mysterious like out of a fable or fairy tale. It seems if I could enter the dark arched doorway in the background, I'd encounter a magnificent world of poetic fantasy! A place made for wishes and dreams...

Hilda said...

I absolutely adore the textures here!

VP said...

A very interesting place beautifully photographed. Would you be able to find there a bench in style?

J Bar said...

Marvellous shot.

Francisca said...

VP, you make me smile. JM, this photo hit me. What a superb composition of a unique structure.

[And with a big smile I tell you I think you are very wrong to say you are not a photographer. It may not be your profession, but you are world class. I don't know if you participate in online photo sites like http://jpgmag.com/, but you certainly would fit right in.]

Gunn said...

Lots of WORK have been put in to this beautiful place.

I love the textures of the stones here
