I have yet another week of stunning images in store for this weeks challenge. With entries from around the globe, its always a real treat for me to see what comes in each week. Especially when I know nothing about the site in question and its history, So thank you to everyone whom contributed to this week’s challenge. If you have submitted an image before, you know the score. And for those of you who have not yet participated! DON’T BE SHY, I really want to hear from you. Check out the end of this post for details on how you can join in on the fun. As always the idea behind this challenge is to raise the awareness of people to the fact that our little world is filled with fantastic history and heritage, which is sadly forgotten about and ignored or destroyed. If you missed out on last week’s Challenge, you can check it out HERE.

7. Oughavel Church, Laois, Ireland. By Ed Mooney @ EdMooneyPhotography
The church at Oughavel near Stradbally in Co. Laois is quite specacular for a simple country church. On my second visit here, I brought my three little ruinhunters whom had a blast. When I was showing them the mortuary chamber to the rear of the building, my eldest told me that that was where the ‘Vampire’s live’ 🙂 You can read all about its history HERE
And so thats it for this week, I hope that you have enjoyed this weeks selection of images. Many of the contributors will have this included on their own blog, so if any or all of the sites this week appeal to you, please feel free to drop a line in the comments section below. Or even better yet, click on the link located underneath each image and check out what they are up too. Im sure that they would be only too happy to hear from you and answer any questions you might have.
So here is how you too, can join in;
The plan is quite simple, each Wednesday I will be posting an image of a random site with a heritage connection. Any images sent in will be included in the challenge along with your name and a link to your site. Full credit is given to each participant. The joy of this challenge is that we can all participate and share our images whilst raising the awareness of our own particular History and Heritage. The image can be anything from an old Church or Castle, to a Battlefield or Neolithic tomb, the choices are endless. And you can capture the image on any device you choose to. It can be in colour, black and white or any variation. The important thing is that we share.
And so to make sure that the challenge runs smoothly here are a few notes on how to participate:
- All images must have been taking by you, there is no time restriction on this and you retain the copyright for your images
- Images should be submitted via email by no later than midnight GMT on the Sunday before so I can ensure the challenge is ready to be posted on the Wednesday morning. My email address is email@example.com
- You don’t have to even have to be a WordPress blogger. This challenge is open to everyone, please include your name and a link back to your blog, website or social media page.
- Images should be kept at low resolution with the largest side at 1000 pixels or less, if you need help with this you can pm me.
- Once the challenge is published I will delete all files and mails from that week .
- Each contributor should write a small piece about their image on their blog, for readers to check out, or at least the history behind the shot by adding to the comments of each challenge.
Fingers crossed we will have some more fantastic Images, History and Heritage to share with you next Wednesday.
