Happy Halloween

“Cold be hand and heart and bone
and cold be sleep under stone
never more to wake on stony bed
never, till the Sun fails and the Moon is dead
In the black wind the stars shall die
and still be gold here let them lie
till the Dark Lord lifts his hand
over dead sea and withered land.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

    • Maybe you are right about the spirit, Alen.
      It would certainly be a mess, if you cut a wand from the tree. Perhaps the wrong objects were hit because it would be impossible to aim, and the spirit would probably have its own agenda 🙂 🙂

    • Muchas gracias, Isabel. La luz era increíble en el cementerio y hermosos motivos en todas partes.
      Un fuerte abrazo 🙂

  1. Magnífica e impresionante serie, Hanna. Has conseguido crear en cada una de las fotos y en todo el conjunto, un ambiente oscuro y tétrico, pero a la vez muy sugerente. Me ha encantado esta colección.
    Saludos y feliz primer día de Noviembre.

    • Hi Leo. I remember we have talked about churchyards before this post. Life comes into perspective confronted with death. It’s a great place to reflect and set new goals. In this way churchyards inspire me.
      The photos are from an old churchyard in Copenhagen established in the year 1760. A number of celebrities are buried here, among them, Hans Christian Andersen.
      We had a stroll yesterday and the weather was beautiful. The sun stands low these days and the warmth light is delightful in the leaves of autumn.
      I wish you a happy new week 🙂
      All the best,

  2. Excellent quote and the photos are so atmospheric! Gorgeous colours and moods here. Happy Halloween to you too, Hanna. 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Jane. Fortunately we are still alive after a nice walk in the churchyard. It also goes well with the sofa and the spiders 🙂
      I hope yours are feeling great as well. Remarkable spiders you have in Australia 🙂
      All the best,

  3. Me encanta el poema de Tolkien. Las fotos son muy sugerentes para ilustrar el tema, y ¡qué decir de los árboles otoñales! Son una maravilla de color. Buen finde amiga. 🙂

    • Tolkien is something very special. His universe offers everything a good story should contain.
      The motives are from an old churchyard in Copenhagen. Twilight had been optimally 🙂
      Wishing you a lovely new week, Magnoliae.
      All the best,
