St. Augustine Cemetery (Shadows)

Old cemetery tombstone with shadow of cross.One of the photo challenges in one of the photo clubs I belong to was using shadow as a subject. This was a while back but I find myself looking for shadow photo opportunities every time I go out to take pictures. I found this while visiting the St. Augustine Cemetery in Minster Ohio. All these old cemetery's have a fair amount of cross tipped monuments so this is hardly a rare find, but it caught my eye non-the-less. I would of liked to have gotten a little blur on the background but I like the shadow of the trees on the ground to go with the shadow of the cross on the monument. This was taken about 7:00 PM. I would of liked to have stayed longer and seen what light/shadows developed as the sun set but that will have to wait for another time.
