About This Image:
The Aran Islands were one of those special almost indescribable places you stumble across from time to time. When the winds were howling and the rain was whipping across the island, you wondered why anyone would ever live in such a place. Then the sun came out and the island was suddenly… well, you just suddenly understood why someone would want to call it home. It somehow evened out in an inexplicable way. I think, as well, the islands are special in a perhaps supernatural way. I think it’s all about Hallowed ground.
From the ancient iron age ruins that dot the island to places like these monastic ruins, I think there’s something that draws people to this little faraway corner of Ireland. Those ancient ruins were almost magical to me, but it was the site of this old medieval monastery, Na Seacht dTeampaill – The Seven Churches, that is hallowed ground for the local Irish even until today.
At first blush this might look like ancient ruins and little else, but if you start really looking at the cemetery, you’ll realize that all of those graves aren’t ancient. I didn’t know about this before visiting Ireland, but there’s a tradition that persists unto today of wanting to be buried in old hallowed ground like these church ruins.
In fact, every time I saw monastic ruins while in Ireland, I also saw contemporary graves. Amongst the ruins of The Seven Churches on Inishmore, there was just a wee sliver of hallowed ground to be found. Which explains the complete lack of any order to the burials. I’ve never encountered such a higgledy-piggledy grave-yard before. Have you? If here was room for a burial, someone was there – an elegant if scattered approach.
But in that beautiful pale winter sunlight that morning on Inishmore, it was such a beautiful place that one understood the desire to spend eternity there.

DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!

I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
