Lovely old cemetery and wonderful shadow shots for the day! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!Sylvia
A double way - into the photo, the is. Very nice.
This is beautiful. I really like cemeteries and find a certain peace about them.
Very nice composition.Regards and best wishes
what a picture perfect shadow shot of the cementary.
I simply LOVE this! Nuff said!John
Great shadows -- they make a nice frame to the brightly lit plot in the middle. One of the shadows in the foreground looks a bit like a stick figure striding along.
It so peace and quiet in a way.Happy SSS...Blessings,/CC
This is very pretty, Gerald, and with a commanding view. I gather, from the width of the carriageways, that cars are allowed through the cemetery. I liked the snow picture (even though your imprint spoils it!!). However, the 'shipman' image could not be found.I wanted to get a google satellite view of the entire cemetery, but could not work out which Hyde Cemetery was the correct one. Is it on Greenhill Road?Thanks for this contribution. Like yourself, I am hoping the portal is up and going by the end of this weekend. I suspect the 'team' are sick of it by now!!
There was an error in the Shipman link (I missed out a quote-mark!) - now corrected - the snowy photo without overlaying text can be viewed here and the 2000 shot also at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/807684 - scroll down one one of the geograph pages and you'll find a link to google-maps - I suspect you were searching for some other Hyde Cemetery - this is the one in Hyde, Cheshire!
Only corteges and cemetery vehicles are allowed into the cemetery - private vehicles must park near the main entrance on Stockport Road.
beautiful composition ! I like the way the shadows all converge towards the graves ...
Lovely shadows from the cemetery. There sure are a lot of headstones in such a small area.
Captured beautifully! Thank you for your gorgeous contribution to Shadow Shot Sunday 2.Shadows of Nothingness, have a blessed Sunday!Rose
Love the perspective of the photo! It seems the lens has captured the graves wrapped in a heart shape created by the drive! Very interesting! And love the criss-crossing shadows!
What a gorgeous capture of shadow, light and life...life in varied forms. Beautiful.
Which path shall I take? The right or the left? Either way, I'm sure I'll see wondrous shadows.Shadowy Poppy
