One Day One World Project: 21:00 – 22:00

The Kirkyard in Kirkcudbright

The site of St Cuthbert’s Kirk lies in the older part of the kirkyard in Kirkcudbright. The ancient church was dedicated to Saint Cuthbert, the patron saint of Anglian kingdom of Northumbria. The town is named after it.

Rising above the town, the kirkyard can be viewed from across the River Dee and is a perfect spot to watch the sun set.

Lisa of the blog NorthWest Frame of Mind has decided to run a different project over the next 24 weeks. To try to show what is happening in different parts of the world (if you all join in) at a particular time of day. If you would like to participate you have until next Saturday midnight to post a photo or write about what is happening in your part of the world.   This week is between 21:00 – 22:00.  I hope you’ll join in! See links for more details.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. That last one is pure joy, Jude. I’m just there and gazing in wonder 🙂
    I’d never heard the expression ‘kirkyard’ but it’s so expressive in a gently Scots way, isn’t it?
    I took a couple of sunsets the other night, meaning to get into this challenge, but I’m afraid my setting left a little to be desired 🙂

    1. There is a bench up at the top, near those rhododendron, and we did in fact sit and look for quite a while, until the sun started to disappear behind cloud. And there were dozens of rabbits scampering around at the bottom in the new part, nibbling the grass. Lovely views too, though impossible to photograph into the sun as it was too hazy. I like the deep shadows, and I like the silhouettes. As for capturing sunsets the best time is before and after, especially if there are clouds about. Just keep on practising – and if you have a sunset setting on your camera, use it 🙂

  2. Lovely sunset shots Jude, and nothing better than the gravestones and monuments to set them off. More good weather in Scotland!
    Regards as always, Pete.

    1. Every evening was like this Pete – even if the day started off cloudy or drizzling, by afternoon we had brilliant sunshine – even got sunburned one day whilst visiting gardens in the south-west!
