The Irish Graveyard in Colour

An Irish graveyard, not always a sombre place An Irish graveyard, not always a sombre place

Graveyards in Ireland

The stereotype of graveyards often is that they are sombre, forlorn places but in Ireland, as indeed in many parts of the world, the graveyard is often a colourful place full of wildlife and of course most usually quiet.

Here is no exception, this small graveyard in County Tipperary shows traditional style crosses and headstones amongst bright grass under a blue sky.

The weathering of the stone has allowed lichens and mosses to stain the headstones and the metal railings have rusted but these are still in good condition.

Better still, why not come along on one of my many forays into the Irish countryside and learn how to make better images (and video).
