Highgate Cemetery in late autumn

A few days ago I decided to visit Highgate Cemetery. It had been a glorious day and parts of the cemetery were still illuminated by the late afternoon sun.

Here are some of the photographs I took at the East Cemetery:

I like the way the ivy encircled this sunlit stone figure and the fusion of nature and sculpture:

A noseless, winged angel …

I particularly like this angel and the pretty pastel background:

The next few images all feature crucifixes decorated with floral motifs:


This rose-adorned crucifix also has ivy growing on it:
