A Resting Place..

There's a very old cemetery in Macon, Georgia that has the most beautiful cherry trees surrounding it. On one hill, a small tombstone rests at a slight angle and seems to be protected by the tree it's underneath, a mutual relationship of sorts.
I like to photograph cemeteries in infrared, it seems to be more expressive that way. It's an ever popular theme with infrared photographers. I used several layers of texture to add more depth and interest, and to tone the overall image.
In my online course at BetterPhoto, we cover creative ways to expand on digital infrared photography. I'm continually impressed with what everyone comes up with for the weekly assignments - a great exchange of learning and fun! Interested? Next course starts on September 2.
Make great pictures!
