In a secluded garden area, the Durnstein, Austria, cemetery, kept neat as pin, has wrought iron crosses, plaques, and images of loved ones passed on.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    well, the Germans and Austrian do have a reputation for being very specific, detailed, extra clean and neat. It can be seen wherever one goes there

    Certainly a beautiful, well-kept cemetery – beautifully captured, Phil!

  • thanks monnie
    it could be a pleasant place to visit. Ours , to me, seem more stark and less “lived in”
