Tree and Gravestones (BW version)

    Newer Older

    Kate and I decided to take a drive west today. It was rainy, but that can make for interesting pictures. We hadn't seen anything promising when I glanced at this cemetary as we drove by. With the fog and the old monuments, I figured there might be something interesting and I was right. As we drove around this very small graveyard, we both spotted this exact composition. After we saw it on the LCD, we both had the same, "this is very cool" reaction. I hope you all agree.

    By the way, the fog got so bad that we decided it wasn't terribly safe to continue. But this picture's worth the effort.

    I thought I'd try it in monochrome too.
    Here's the color version

      Killer shot, as if taken from Night of the Living Dead itself.
