Grace

Detail of stone angel found watching over one of the graves in the old Pinner Cemetary. I thought her face seemed very serene. It reminded me of one of my favourite paintings by Botticelli called The Three Graces.

    This whole series is absolutely gorgeous, Meredith. You have captured her in just the perfect light and brought out all the soft detail beautifully. You must be thrilled.

    Thanks Lesley. I love finding beautiful old statures like this & given the time of year I was very lucky with the light. Hope we get a few more days like this ;-)
