Pine Grove Cemetary

I love to walk through graveyards. I love to consider the impact each of these people had and how it still resonates today; at the same time it reminds me strongly that heaven is life and you better go for it now. And it goes without saying that the gravestones in cemetaries can be beautiful and amusing.

 

But the one thing that really makes a cemetary great? Its trees. Cemetaries have magnificent trees, and this one in Pine Grove Cemetary in New Buffalo, Michigan, looks like it has sprung up from the energy of the souls around it... Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim.

    Agree with you Kevin. Graveyards are places that speak to us of time and its passing and also of regeneration and continuity.

    Would like to expand a little regarding Mr (Kevin) Dolley's comment...but first I do agree with so many comments regarding the sky and clouds-beautiful background which indeed Mr Dooley caught. Yet as Mr Dooley stated regarding 'the graves'; "...I love to consider the impact each of these people had and how it still resonates today..." They each, the graves, hold a person that is sleeping well and the "tree" in all its magnificent beauty is saying to us whom are left behind, 'life does continue'! Mr Dooley I'm sure were both inclined, in the positive way, of what graveyards really display and "say" to all of us living today. Great work sir. Keep it up.
