I took this photo last Saturday before the snow hit on Saturday night. Brompton Cemetery in London, England.
Cemeteries always give a sadness to me… But this is wonderful photograph. Thank you dear TBM, with my love, nia
Thanks Nia…I find it interesting that a place of sadness can also be beautiful.
I’m guessing you didn’t get to Haworth when you were in Yorkshire? You’re going to go overboard there!
We didn’t, but luckily we are planning another trip to our friends house in York later this year. I’ll have to look into it. Is that the place of the Bronte sisters?
One of the first things I would want to do on a trip to England would be to check out some of the cool old cemeteries. There is just so much rich history there.
Carl you are going to love England. You know so much about the authors, history, and everything…I would love to see your face when you wander around this beautiful place. You would be in heaven.
Everything is so overgrown… what a cool image.
I like the feel it gives…mysterious!
They definitely look old.
The cemetery opened in the 1860s. The history here is pretty cool.
A woman after my own heart – I LOVE cemeteries
They are interesting to explore. You learn so much about the history.
Nice! Did you have a chance to look at the cemetery photos I took from New Orleans and here in Singapore?
I did! But for some reason I can’t find the posts to revisit them. The cemeteries in New Orleans are so cool. I haven’t been to any yet in Singapore.
Nice, sort of coldish but peaceful ambience in the picture! I haven’t been to this cemetery. It’s weir that people here are going for a walk or a jog in the cemetery 🙂 We have an old cemetery in Nunhead, not far from Brockley and went there for a walk some time ago and it was actually very nice, it’s like a big park overlooking the City and St Paul’s Cathedral from the top of the hill with graves dating back to 1800!
I’ll have to check out the cemetery in Nunhead. Sounds like it has some cool views and history. I was a little surprised that the cemetery here is used more like a park, but I adapted quickly and it is one of my favorite places to go for a walk or a run.
I love taking pictures in cemeteries too…..this is a great shot!
Thanks! They are intriguing places to take photos.
Gorgeous photo, in a rather spooky way.
Thanks Carol…it is a little spooky.
