At Forest Hills Cemetery

Forest Hills is a wonderful, very old, cemetery in Boston.  It's a beautiful, peaceful place with century old trees, thousands of graves and mausoleums and some of the most incredibly beautiful funerary art in America.  Mostly from the victorian era, there are bronze statues, stone monuments and some wonderful contemporary sculpture installations.  This is a photo of one of the monuments, altered with gradients and blending modes.

This is a photo of a sugar maple at Forest Hills.  I applied the Orton effect.


  1. I love your cemetery statuary, Linda... I'm still thinking about the Orton effect. I'd love to see the photo without's gorgeous...the color of the tree and the setting!!

  2. I'm crazy about cemetery statues, too. I wanted to put one in my living room but DH put his foot down! Lovely post.xx

  3. how did i miss these?! the second one with the leaves is absolutely stunning. love the color and the texture is to die for (no pun intended)!
