A very atmospheric shot! I love it! It's exactly the sort of place I'd like to explore.

Whether the atmosphere has anything to do with it, I don't know, but the word verification is "choking". :)

Alice Audrey said...

Wow. Spooky and ethereal.

Lisa said...

Beautiful . . . the softness is entrancing.

Bonggamom said...

I love the gloomy, haunting tone of the photo. Wonder why the cross broke?


My photo hunt post this week is about broken hearts and broken arms:

This is eerie and dreamlike...I´m sure there is a ghost waiting behind a stone.

jmb said...

Old churchyards are usually good for something broken except in this young part of the world.

Have a great weekend Jams.

Ann said...

there are lots of broken things in an old cemetary. but I didn't think of it.

Irene said...

WOW! It took me a while to find the broken cross. Have a great weekend!

It looks like a very old cemetary. Sad that the cross is broken. Good find for the theme this week though.

Mrs. Mecomber said...

What a surreal photo! I wondered if we'd see a broken headstone this week.

I'm late in visiting everyone for Photo Hunters, but better late than never! Have a wonderful week.
