Photo of the Day: Today shalt thou be with me in Paradise

Out exploring the countryside near Scio, Oregon with my father between Christmas and New Year's, we came across this beautiful little pioneer cemetery tucked away in the woods. The snow was falling heavily, it was cold, so we didn't linger a long time, but I was captivated by the beautiful wrought-iron gate; in the distance on the hill, a large and detailed crucifix above one of the graves; and the symmetry between them. This is the result: not a "beautiful" photograph in a double rainbow kind of way, but one that I find very intriguing.

And by the way, yes, in the original there was a flagpole to the left of the cross, which I erased in photoshop.
