Resting Places

Every once in a while a photo shoot is not planned. 
I was fortunate to take pictures at a Penguin Plunge in new London 
a while back, and on the way some Angels caught my eye.

I made a mental note to try to find them again on the way back.
GPS doesn't always have the same idea as I do, and may have re-routed me a different way back 
than the way I had originally gone.

But...I tinkered with my really bad sense of direction 
(I only know North from South due to moss and you can't see that real well when you are driving.)

As luck would have it, I found myself in the right area, albeit the wrong side of the Angel Road.
I wandered around a stunning Resting Place (hard to call it a cemetery or graveyard)
and practiced some HDR techniques.

Here are some results. Not altered except for the combination of 3 exposures.
Some things appeared that I sensed but not suspected.

I wandered around a beautiful area that went from the 1700's to present day.

I eventually found the Angels on my departure...on the other side of the road.

A different view of history through the eyes of the loved ones that honored the ones passed.
