Eternal Peace

By webjam
While in Norfolk, we went out to the Broads because Conrad wanted to photograph the mills there. During our search for these mills, we came across this little church and overgrown old graveyard.
It was late afternoon, the sun was just coming over the top of the trees which surrounded the church yard.
The white flowers of the weeds were catching the light, swinging on the light breeze. The old tombstones were scattered around the yard. Some were still standing up, others were leaning over. The stones were quite old, often covered in patterns of lychen.
I stood in the shadow of the old trees and overlooked the scene. It was such a peaceful moment, the light, the breeze and the mood of the yard. Untouched for such a long time, undisturbed for years.
Despite all the photographic rules, I took this shot into the sunlight, hoping to capture that peaceful moment.

Comments and critiques welcome.

Thank you Ken! I was wondering whether I would turn it into B&W, but the memory that I captured here was in full colour. Smile Found it hard to let go of those colours...

I like your mod very much! The Dodging and Burning changes the mood much, but has created a beautiful image. Thank you!
