Late Summer Shadows

I have found that cemeteries are some of the most interesting places to photograph.  Many old cemeteries in big cities have very ornate stones commemorating the once important citizens of yesteryear.  Other cemeteries, like the Gunnisonville Cemetery near Dewitt, Michigan, have simpler stones for the simpler folks that lived there once.  The angle of the sunset on these stones made for a dramatic photo last week when I was there with Valerie as she prepared for the historical society's cemetery walk.  The late summer shadows in the evening are starting to come at an angle that signal the days are getting shorter and winter will soon arrive - very apropos for a cemetery.
