The Early Christian Monastery on Skellig Michael

From the 6th up to the 13th century Christian hermits and monks built a small monastery on a most remote, but precious and inspiring rocky island out in the Atlantic off the coast of South Kerry.
They were seeking spiritual freedom away from all worldly concerns and found it on this platform between the roaring sea, some bizarre rocks and the ever changing sky.
When I was allowed to stay on Skellig Michael this past April for three nights I was very excited and tried to use every minute of sunlight during the days to take pictures.
Some of them are published here:
