The Cemetery Angels

I love cemetery angels, there is just something about those magnificent stone memorials that leaves me breathless. Yet, some of the most effective ones that I have seen have not been glorious winged creations, but smaller and often more innocent beauties that are placed on the graves of children. I have photographed a lot of them, in two countries, and I keep on finding them where ever I happen to be. This is a tribute to some of them that I have seen, it is really a continuation of a similar post I did in December 2011

Given how many angels I have seen I will come back to this page as time allows, but be rest assured there will be a many more to come. So far there are five pages created, and probably more will come as time passes. Not all the statues are of angels though, I have included some others that are just stunning anyway.

Images open in a new window and are generally 768×1024 because most are portrait images as opposed to landscape, however, in cases where I have used a closeup image too the images will be much larger. I have avoided showing names on the graves, but will include the name of the cemetery or churchyard where applicable.
