FaBULOUS jOHN. i LOVE THE WAY THESE OLD STONES ARE LIT AND ARE ALL FALLING BACK AS IF THE POWER OF THE SUN IS TOO MUCH FOR THEM.
John Prior: Thanks Chad, the power of the late afternoon sun.
Nice shot John. Love the colour of the sky. Great sharpness and details.
not one for cemeteries myself
John Prior: I know what you mean, but they can be fascinating places.
We like walking about churchyards and churches Johon, well framed and taken.
John Prior: Thoughtful and sometimes fascinating places.
A nice resting place, I must say.
I also like picturing cemeteries. Nice views here.
The colours in the gravestones blend beautifully with the winter landscape colours John

I'm not familiar with this place, although I do know the Ridgeway Path through Chequers. I love the warmth this image has, even though I'm sure it was freezing!
Very nice John and lovely lighting on the gravestones.

As always, you impress.

Great title for this beautiful view, very nicely composed. I like it.
Have a nice day.
