This image is one of my favourites. The photo was taken in the East Perth Cemetery. The light was really bad about half an hour after sunset and there was a really bad storm approaching.

The title is from an Eric Burdon song " Sky Pilot " One line of that song was " The angel of death looks down from the sky"

I have lost the negative for this pic so it is take from an old 8 by 10 print.

image was shot on a Ricoh KR5 using a Tokina 24 mm lens

    Andrew wow this is almost like a scary painting, dantes inferno springs to mind, yes I see what you mean about the darkness, personally I agree it is the photographers sight and capture, that make the picture for the photographer. I also understand that what you and I see as dark and haunting pictures others don’t have the time for them. It is a sense of occult and gothica that allows the likes of you and I to grab these moments.
