Welcome to the 156th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
I’m truly overwhelmed by the number of responses to this week’s theme of Worship! The fire affected all of us and touched us in a way that we will not soon forget. The same fire also inspires us to look at our places of worship, why we worship and the very meaning that it has in our lives and souls. Your posts were absolutely stunning and touched me in many ways.
I hope that all of you will take the time to read each post, as I have, and will enjoy them as I have. Thank you all for the great posts and your inspiration!
Here’s another ancient place of worship…
This wonderful stone circle stands on the Isle of Mull. While exploring this site, I could feel the power that rests within it, and couldn’t help but think about the people that were here when it was just built; they went to great lengths to create something that would cement their connection to the supernatural…

Must be one of the biggest response Frank. Took me ages to get through them all. You do a great job in compiling the entries Thank you 🙂
Thank you, Brian! Yes, this one had a fantastic response!
Many thanks for the mention..it is greatly appreciated xx
Amazing and beautiful. Thank-you for rounding up the responses so we can enjoy them from one place.
You’re very welcome. Thank you for contributing a great post!
That looks like a wonderful place. I had to look it up. Tobermory, from the island, is not a widely known distillery either. I would look forward to seeing both one day.
I’ve not been to the distillery, but I do enjoy their product! They also produce a Ledaig single malt that is wonderful!
I should look out for it.
Wow! great compiling as always! Just managed to be in…
I just made my contribution for the week. For me, acts of self-care are sacred and I took a photo this morning of one that I’m using for my Self-forgiveness and Money group!
So love these challenges. Thanks, Frank.
I added your post to the round up; sacred is close enough to the theme of worship.
Have a wonderful week,
Frank, I am so sorry! For some reason, I had sacred in my head for this week. Thanks for adding it. Honestly, I was a little out of sorts this morning. A friend of mine disappeared yesterday after an Easter event in my place of worship (speaking of which). Luckily she was found, after a long night for her. She has Alzheimer’s.
Anyway, that’s what was happening for me. Blessings to you—I hope you and your wife had a lovely sacred 🙂 Easter.
Not a problem, Debbie. Glad to hear that your friend was found.
ps – beautiful photo of a unique place of worship! I agree, the stone circle seems quite powerful.
Lovely shot of the Lochbuie Stones, and their relation to the landscape. Not a circle I have visited, but now I want to go!
It’s a wonderful location!
