Much appreciated, Alan. A reminder, too, that we have not investigated any 'new' cemeteries of late.
It's all a matter of light and where it falls, of course. Plus the way that nature gradually takes over to add its own shapes and textures to the masonry. Ashes to ashes.
I would be pleased to have all these in my portfolio, perhaps with a very slight preference for V2.

Terminus, otherwise expressed as dead end... I was saying to Bill only the other day that we haven't found a good cemetery recently...
As always with these places, it's about the light, catching those clean sculpted lines at the tops of gravestones. V2 floats my boat. It's the star for me anyway, though I think I'd give the blacks a bit more punch. V1 for the birch bark, V3 for the contrast of stone and foliage.

Quote: I uploaded a Scary Saturday for you yesterday, by the way, but you weren't around. I have got over sulking.

Took a few days off, to try and get a life. Limited success.

I saw that scary sat. image last night, and it made me smile. Chose not to comment as 3/4 of a bottle of a rather presumptuous little Chardonnay/Semillon hybrid had inclined my choice of remarks somewhat in the direction of the utterly appalling and tasteless. In retrospect, I am rather impressed by my self-control.

....Thanks both.

P.S. And leave my blacks alone! Turn up the contrast on your monitor!

Aah, Rod, yet again we glimpse the philosopher in your soul.
As to the events of last night.... at my age, 3/4 of a bottle of Australia's finest does not get you 'half-pished,' as you so quaintly put it in your characterful Scottish argot, it gets you almost legless.

Indeed. And as you become ever older, so does finding Oblivion become ever cheaper. Eventually of course, it's free.

All this joyful banter.... Boy am I glad my son started his faith journey today with his baptism...

Moody fatalism... Great tones, contrasts and compositions leading us to the final resting place in v3

Great work, glad you uploaded, my turn to go get loaded!
