Default The Graveyard Shift

Had a wander round the local cemetery the other morning. The light was great and there was just a bit of a mist.

I was quite pleased with how they came out

Beautiful, Rob. On one of the stones, the date of death was 1869. In those days, where I live, western Canada, was wide open prairie, hardly any settlers, huge herds of bison, and hundreds of Indian tribes, who followed the bison.

One could almost make a hobby of photographing old headstones.

had good conditions for these shots. the mist works well with the subject matter.

#4 is my pick, good lighting and composition. and th mist in the trees and gravestones gives it a foreboding background.

Cheers for the comments, i was really pleased with #4...

I cant remember what i was doing in 1869, probably eating grass on a Canadian prairie in a previous life ...

It would be less stressful than the job i have now...

Those Canadian grass-eaters didn't make out very well. Too many people with guns came from the U.K. and made them nearly extinct.
