Beauty at the Cemetery

I was going through some archived photos. Yes, I was pouting that my sky has been disappointing all week, and I needed to cheer myself up by realizing that these clouds (and overcast) will, in fact, pass.

I wanted to show you why I like photographing the cemetery gate. In fact, once it is the right time of year, and the sun is setting in the proper area in the sky, I take a photo of that cemetery gate in front of the sunset almost every night.

So, since I'm not participating in Sky Watch, I'm going to show you some of my favorite shots of the gate.

Wow Misty they are beautiful shots. What ornate work on that cemetery gate! It is silhouetted perfectly and the colour of the sun...

You may not be "participating" but these shots are well worth posting! Even with overcast skies - very dramatic.

Gloria

These pictures are gorgeous! The last one is my favorite, it looks so dramatic :)

what a great location...and wonderful pictures.

(I don't know the rules about sky watch...why wouldn't these qualify?)

Misty you can be so proud of these very beautiful shots of the cemetery gate. I think you should put up the Skywatch icon. You pictures make us all who participate in SWF proud! :D

Those are some truly gorgeous shots, I can see why you photograph that particular gate every night. Amazing.

How old is it by the way? I love old cemeteries and the history that surrounds them.
