St. Patrick's College Cemetery
The light was nothing short of spectacular on this afternoon. This is actually how it looked, a gap in the clouds was picking out the spire of the college church so perfectly that it looked snow-white against the dark sky. The fact that the trees around the cemetery were at their autumn best was just a bonus!
