My mother-in-law was christened at this beautiful old church in southern Germany in 1924. Although the structure was damaged during the two world wars and rebuilt in the early 1930s, the cornerstone reads 849! The well-maintained cemetery was a photo tour of itself. (orig. film)

    I agree with the above! What wonderful composition. The sun is giving such warmth to the scene, and the colors of the flowers add cheerfulness; a great contrast to the somber setting. Fabulous capture, Don!!!

    I really like the pov you chose in this photo, Don! I agree with Regenia's statement. The textures are so detailed, I feel I could touch them. I would love to see more photos of the beautiful cemetery if you have any. It appears to be one of the best kept I have seen. Do you have any photos of the interior of the church too? This is just such a breathtaking place, and you have captured it so professionally!!!
