In a local church cemetery.
The two evergreens acting as gates to the road passing over. The gray sky; the fall colors; the fallen leaves; the tombstones all lent to the image of the dead end of life!

Nice color and composition. Too bad the sky was overcast.

I like this the best among "graveyard" entries. Hope people understand the title and don't just think "the movie". The swath of leaves in the foreground is what makes this pic. I also like the way the stones are separated and isolated from us as a further metaphorical way of damning the dead. 7
