The Shroud In Green-Wood Cemetery

————————————————————————————–9 exposure HDR…..Click on image for full size…..
Included on HDR Spotting



  1. What a hauntingly beautiful image. It reminds me very much of a dance by Martha Graham called “Lamentation”, in which a lone female dancer, wrapped in a stretching cloak, embodies the agony of pain and loss.Her face is often hidden, and when it flashes, it is like lightning striking your soul. I am amazed to see this immortalized in stone in a cemetery. It makes me want to know more about this figure. Who is this woman? What suffering has caused her to hide her face? When was she buried? Who is placing flowers on her grave still? A mystery indeed.

  3. When the photo filled the screen I closed my eyes – I could actually feel the grief.
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and introducing me to yours.

  4. Wow. Your photographs are wonderful!
    Thanks for visiting my newborn blog. Cave Hill is an historic cemetery in Louisville, KY. I should actually put a link in that post- my g-grandfather’s monument is on their website. Here it is:

  5. If anyone knows the name of the artist who sculpted the bronze eagle on the Kessler monument in Cave Hill, would you post it, please? Thank you.
