sky over island cemetery



























visiting this cemetery on block island provides a rich sense of island history as well an amazing hilltop view of the surrounding area. I was lucky enough to be there about an hour before sunset to catch this golden sky.

Hi Lily

I really liked the way the sun is peeking through the monuments in this photo.

On my way home from vacation... we saw so much beauty in N. CA and Yosemite ..stay tuned for future posts :)

It's lovely, but I think I'd be out of there before the sun sets completely!
