Shadow Shot Sunday:
St George's Burial Ground


The burial ground at the side of St George's church was full of shadows the day I took this photograph.

It looks as if some of the gravestones are falling down into the valley of Gower Hey Brook as you can see on Hyde DP Xtra.

For more shadow shots visit Hey Harriet.

I was very annoyed at the state of this grave yard when I last visited Gerald.... Years or neglect and vandalism have taken place here... This was once such a nice area, well kept and respected just as it should have been... very sad sight indeed.

Yikes! The thought of the gravestones falling down into the valley is a bit sad. A great shadowy capture!

What a special place. Great shadows indeed. But it looks still like a little bit winterly.

I believe that it would cost in the region of half a million pounds to put this graveyard into it's original condition, seems a shame to see ti this way.

It must be very old! Too bad it has been neglected.
