Mann's Chapel/Cemetery Reflection by mnkreations

Mann's Chapel/Cemetery Reflection by 

This photo is a naturally occurring composite. Because the chapel is locked, I was photographing the cross hanging inside the chapel from the outside when I noticed the reflection of Mann’s Cemetery reflected on the window. I took a picture of the reflected cemetery and the cross came through giving the illusion that the cross is suspended outside over the graves keeping a sacred watch over the souls buried there. If you look closely, the altar rail and chairs are visible in the lower half of the photo. Mann’s Chapel and Cemetery are located between Rossville and Bismark, Illinois in Vermilion County. Erected in 1857, Mann’s Chapel is the oldest pioneer chapel in Vermilion County. Photo taken with a Nikon D60 and Tamron 28-74 lens.
