    It's a great photo Phil and I like the wording on the headstone. The term "Lay me down in green pastures" seems to ring true here.

      Looking at this shot brings that saying to my mind.
      You're long time dead, and 1862 is well before I was born so this is so true.
      I am not sure If I would think of this and it is again you thinking outside of the norm.
      And to me this is such a gift to have and your mind is always open to look outside of the box.
      A very well done from me.

        another interesting image. I reckon the sky being replace would really lift this one.
        maybe some selective shadow lift on some of the headstones also?
        good work

          Thanks fellas

          Yes- it's one of those things that one sees from time-to-time and it is different enough to actually take a photo of it
          Sky-wise ... actually it was high-level white cloud and a damn nuisance when I really wanted a nice blue sky with a few whispy bits floating around!. So 'yes', replacement is a possibility sometime in the future
          Also- shadow-lifting I have left alone as the headstones were dark stone and many had the light-green lichen clinging, so I just left them as is

              Sky = okay .... green is a bit ferocious

              Dead right mate, a bit too much saturation so I dulled it down a tad.

              I have memories of feeling very sorry for the poor buggers that suffered on the island. How is that for green? The ultimate punishment was burrying the dead outside the cemetary. How awful they must feel. (tic)
