Hi Bill, I really like this shot! Sometimes I see photos and they remind me of places I have visited long ago.

You seem to have mastered the use of low angle to put dramatic emphasis on a shot. Very well done; the result is a moody and slightly disturbing image.

Thanks bhammitt, Barbarian, herclues and Musket for your comments.:-)

Did you know that Yew trees are often found in English churchyards.





Old churches are often surrounded by thick Yew hedges or have Yew trees within the churchyard itself. The thickly branched Yew provides a certain amount of protection for the church fabric.

In 1307, Edward I ordered that Yew trees be planted in churchyards to protect the buildings from high winds and storms.

Medieval people perceived the yew tree to be a symbol of immortality. This belief is almost certainly a throwback to pagan times.

There is evidence to suggest Yew trees encircled Bronze Age round barrows and other burial sites.



Another reason the yew was confined to the churchyard is that it is deadly poisonous to livestock (which were not allowed to wander onto the hallowed ground).

The mature yew also provided a source of bow making timber to keep the UK's archers supplied with new weapons. Though Spain also supplied yew wood.
In the churchyard of Fortingall in Perthshire there are the remnants of a gigantic, ancient yew. Guesses about its age range from 2,000 to 9,000 years.

Incredible shot Bill. I love your perspective with the gravestones leading my eye through the composition all the way up to the cross. If only that cross wasnt cut off then this would be a perfect pic. Great B&W , great tones, great contrast...Very nice!
