Great photo of a cemetery! The door seems to beckon for someone to enter (and never return). I have a poem that is about passing by a cemetery where a loved one is buried. Do you mind if I use your photo as the background for that poem? I would, of course, give you credit. Thanks for considering! :)

Ah yes, Highgate Cemetery, home of the infamous "Highgate Vampire".

A fine capture.  I can't help wondering if and how the roots of the yew interact with the vault.

This is TRULY a stunning shot, man. Simply beautiful. It is an excellent representation of the dual nature of Life and Death. The stairs guide the viewers eyes directly from the foreground of the photo and to the midground which is the doorway of the crypt. With that we are drawn into the underworld and yet...there is still more. The eye is then drawn upward by not only the shape of the doorway but the drastic difference in color coming from the background above. The tree. The Tree of Life is above it, reaching for the heavens and bursting with verdant glory. As the viewer takes this in the become wonderfully aware of the green throughout the rest of the picture. It is as if the photo itself takes one through the journey of death and rebirth, all within a single breath. I suspect that is an evergreen in the center although I can't quite remember what kind. Truly a work of art and soooo worth the Ninja-ing.
