Shot at Melbourne Cemetery, Australia.

Best viewed large

It was almost completely silent in this part of the cemetery, traffic was a distant sound. This particular scene caught my attention, it had an ethereal effect on me with so much life in the tree, hanging over the tombstones of those long past.

Texture added is my own.
