Artist's Description

This is one of over 200 exposures made on December 23 2007 at Kensal Green Cemetery in North West London.

There was a very thick fog that had closed the airports and brought much of the UK to a standstill. It seemed obvious then that I should go and shoot some images in the cemetery which is about 300 yards from my front door.

Interestingly, Kensal Green Cemetery is said to be one of the earliest “modern” Cemeteries, dating from the mid 1800s. Cemeteries all around the world based their design on that of Kensal Green. Part of the intention was to integrate the cemetery with its natural park-like surroundings, a place where death nurtures nature.

Having been shot with a rather ancient Canon 10D at ISO 400, this image is slightly ‘noisy’, but think it adds to the ambience.

Tweaked in Lightroom – desaturated a bit, colour temp lowered slightly, contrast enhanced a tad.
