I took this shot in the graveyard of the Holy Trinity Church (Shakespeare’s Burial Place), Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire England. It was during the day, on an old gravestone, under a very dark shady tree. I didn’t use a flash or any other form of lighting so I have no idea where the reflection in this grey squirrel’s eye came from. He’s looking at me as if to say “Alas! poor mamba, I knew him well” spooky! Shakespeare was buried at the church on April 25, 1616. Alongside him are his wife, Ann Hathaway, his
son and two daughters. The church is about 800 years old.

    He kinda looks like he should be in a cemetary, especially not using flash! Kinda spooky! But I like the image and the history lesson too!

  • Thanks swaby, now that I’ve uploaded it, I’m not quite sure which groups to enter mmm…have to think about this one, I don’t want the hosts hitting me on the head with a hammer and rejecting it because of the poor lighting but that’s exactly what adds to the atmosphere. Well we’ll see. See you swaby and thanks again.
