My Walden cemetery photograph

I've received a few compliments on the Walden cemetery photograph I took a week ago.

In case anyone is curious, what drew my attention when passing by this cemetery was a particular effect of light, one which reminded me of a piece of dialogue I vaguely remembered from one of the "Lord of the Rings" movies. I then wandered around the cemetery for quite a while until I was able to take a photograph which captured it.

Anyway, I just had an opportunity to look up the exact quote that I was vaguely remembering at the time:

PIPPIN: I didn't think it would end this way.

GANDALF: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The gray rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.

PIPPIN: What? Gandalf? See what?

GANDALF: White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.

PIPPIN: Well, that isn't so bad.

GANDALF: No. No, it isn't.
