Last Day of July

Posted by
Jason Kravitz (Brussels, Belgium) on 31 July 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

I was driving past this cemetery last week and had to turn around and go back to take some photos. This is a little town about 2 miles away from Shepton Mallet on the A361 (United Kingdom).

The light is really beautiful here Jason, a lovely capture of it and the bright crips grass.

I love cemeteries. And this one is no exception. I can see why you were driven to stop here. Love image and the fog adds just a bit of mystery!

There's a mist and a bit of mystery here, I guess July is being buried as we get into August, I like that ;)

I would have turned back too. A wonderful capture of sun and mist with the beautiful green and wonderful headstones. A very classic image.

I don't like cemeteries, but I have to confess that this is a wonderful photo, with its air of serenity, its green and atmosphere.

Rich colors, excellent composition and even a little mist make this image a winner. Really nice!

good portrayal of such a solemn and emotional place... the glowing, diffused light really sets the mood and gives the graves a certain aged - almost ghostly - feel...
