Melness Graveyard...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...there was no causeway here when the first grave was dug in the sandy soil here, so much of the land here is hard rock. Ben Loyal would have been here looking across the Kyle of Tongue and maybe the sun was shining like here, not a bad place for relatives to visit and maybe leave a flower.

A hugely atmospheric place by the looks of it Dougie. I love your description .... And I'd love to walk across that causeway. Magical.

Graves with a view, I've always liked that idea. Though like all funerary tradition it's for the benefit of the living.

Isolation without desolation. I could put up with that if I could insist on the splendour of the setting too. Wonderful.

This shot brings a new meaning to "Rest in Peace", Dougie.
The contre jour lighting adds an extra dimension to this expansive shot.

This is wonderful Dougie. Glowering skies that could go either way (as they say, if you don't like the weather, just wait half an hour) and that silver light on the loch. Have you ever visited the ruined church and graveyard at Balnakeil Bay? A really fantastic place.
It was raining the day I was at the Church there Andy I had been twice to no avail and saved it for another day.
I better watch how long I leave it though...Wink

You have controlled that light so well Dougie especially shooting into it like you were. Are there any modern day burials there?
Yes Danny the cemetery has been extended and there's a new one beside the old which is full and it's on a little hill so awkward to extend.
