Naughtston Abby by Brother Steven, on Flickr On a warm, sunny afternoon, Brother Steven was at his usual place in the abbey library, quietly studying passages of the Holy Scriptures and contemplating ancient texts, The atmosphere of the little alcove was pleasant, cheerful and inviting. Without a doubt, it was his favorite retreat for a bit solitude and seclusion. Built for the Classic Castle seed part challenge!
Entry for CCC Miscellanous For many years the Synneora Rock was dwelled by a lone monk Athios, who had decided to spend the rest of his life meditating and devoting himself to God. When Athios passed away, the rock soon became the center of the country's religious life. Hundreds of pilgrims and the nearby villages inhabitants volunteered to help building a new chapel for the memory of Athios - a man of Faith and Sacrifice. Thea main sources of inspiration were Greek monasteries of Meteora, Zhangjiajie rocks (China) and Ha long Bay in Vietnam. I came across an article about Ha Long Bay and that was when I promised myself to try a new "tilted rock" technique, attaching part of the layout diagonally. I recommend it to hardcore-builders. It was the most extreme rock that I've ever made and that is because it is not really a strong construction and once you put a segment to place, nothing can be done... :) Well, it was fun.
