The Gathering Storm by Estruda The Gathering Storm by Estruda

The storm gathers pace towards the cemetery, it matters not to  the deceased lying beneath the trees . Nor will it matter to you when your day arrives to lie amongst the twisted roots of the trees that grow above .

St Catherines Cemetery , Barton Upon Irwell, Lancashire, England ..

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-04-07
:iconkitsunedzelda:
Looking through my daily rounds of DA, searching for something special to inspire me, I hit a grey photo of something I truly love: graveyards. What is it about them that inspire us so?

While you figure that out, I personally find your usage of noncolor for this photo especially appropriate given the material you have to work with, as graveyards are normally protrayed as grey and stony places to begin with. And while the ivy overhanging the graves and the tree tend to drag the eye towards that space and away from the other areas, it also holds the storm mentioned in the title. And when you look at the other parts of the picture after that, you wonder what the haze in the background of the trees may signify too.

All in all, a very thought provoking piece.

As I was strolling through DA, I noticed this picture.

The use of grey has added a touch that really makes the picture come to life. This has really touched me. The ivy hanging over the grave stones makes my heart sing. And the way you made the clouds! Amazing. You combined my 3 favorite things: A graveyard, a storm, and grey! Very well done. Also, the way you have made the branches is very realistic, you are my inspiration. Thank you so much for making this, as this is the finest piece of art I've seen! Very well done!

Very intriguing locale! Back in New England where I am from we had a lot of historical cemeteries....but here in Arizona not so much :( Used to love wandering around trying to imagine who these people were and what kind of lives they lead. Like Wuthering Heights....which I loved the shot of you in front of the chemist store and you mentioned the Bronte sisters. England is so rich with history.....
