We took a drive this weekend. After driving a while, we took a left and drove to the end of the road and at the end of that road we came to the Huntsville Cemetery.
The cemetery is surrounded by water, by a manmade reservoir in a beautiful valley. The main gate to the cemetery was padlocked closed--a kind, local gentleman (I'm assuming he was local; he could have just known a lot about the area...) saw me taking pictures through the gate and told me that a side gate was unlocked and that I could go in and take more pictures.
When I was a kid, cemeteries gave me the creeps. The one in our town used to freak me out when we'd walk by at night, but now, I love them. Each time I drive by one I want to stop and look at the names and wonder who they were.
My family waited in the car while my youngest son and I spent only a few minutes within the gated space. Had I more time I could have gotten some more impressive shots, but for me, it was enough. Maybe one day I'll go back.
