This is a shot I got on the spur of the moment in the College Cemetery on the campus of St. Patrick’s College in Maynooth, Ireland. I had come to the cemetery planning to shoot a few HDR shots when I saw the sun picking out just one cross in the very last row of the cemetery. The HDR shots didn’t turn out nearly as interesting as this unplanned shot.
