Headstones under snow, Old Burying Ground

Headstones under snow, Old Burying Ground

Seriously, wet tree bark and wet stone against a background of clean, white, undisturbed snow is pretty unbeatable when it comes to black and white. Since the cemetery was closed, I had to poke my lens through a space in the fence and crouch down a little to get a decent angle. With a thick blanket of snow, the cemetery gets even more quiet and peaceful. You can tell how gentle the snow was falling, it settled oh so perfectly on the lettering of the headstone on the left.

For those that don’t know, that’s Dalhousie University’s Sexton Campus to the back-left and the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia to the back-right.
