photoblog image The Avenue of Angels

The Avenue of Angels


Ainsdale cemetery leading up to the central mound. The cemetery is generally very well kept but I like the way the ivy has been left on the angels looking like they are cloaked in green.

You're quite right Les: the Ivy makes it feel quite different
Les Auld: Thanks Chris.
It does indeed and I rather like the effect
Les Auld: Thanks Bill.

great work, love the high dynamic range processing
Les Auld: Thanks Asiko, appreciate the comment.
Yes, I can see the attraction, Les. They do look like flowing robes. This has quite surreal look to it with the editing.
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Alan, appreciate it.

I agree, Les. These angels have become one with Nature...and one with those entrusted to their care!
Les Auld: It does seem natural Ginnie, the hard stone and the soft ivy, thanks for the comment.
I'm enjoying this series Les, another excellent shot. They really went town in those days with their memorials.
Les Auld: Typical of most things the Victorians did Brian, thanks for the comment.
Never seen a cemetery like this Les. Beautifully processed. Brilliant.
Les Auld: It is very ornate Ron, thanks for the comment.
