A day in Whitby, on the way up to the Abbey is St Mary’s Church where Bram Stoker penned Dracula. The path through is in places much lower than the grass than weaves around the ancient graves. This was taken at pretty much floor level, with the sun illuminating the grass and headstones.

    Very nice image. I’ll have to try something like this the next time I photograph tombstones. The perspective is interesting.

    Thanks everyone for the views and kind comments.
    This was at the top of the cliff at Whitby in North Yorkshire – the location that Bram Stoker wrote Dracula. The land that the graveyard has natural undulations so the path is slightly lower than some of the graves. It just needed me to lay in the middle of the path, ignoring the strange looks from tourists.
    @Paul Romanowski – I’m not sure of the history of these particular graves, but will be sure to find out next time I am there
