Fall Color in Cincinnati

Good morning,

A few days ago we visited Spring Grove Cemetery which is only about ten minutes from where we live.
Spring Grove dates from 1844 and is the final resting place of many whose names are still known today on businesses, neighborhoods, streets, and buildings.
Our visit this time was a little late in the season to photograph Fall leaves, but we were not disappointed in the scenes we found.

We stopped in the old part of the cemetery and walked to take more pictures.
 Th cemetery is designed as a park with beautiful lakes and beautiful trees.
 As the fourth largest cemetery in the US (it formerly was second in size only to Arlington Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia), the spacious design has promotes the feeling of a park.
 As I walked down to the banks of this lake, I saw there are groupings of family graves on the hillside.
 In the distance I spotted a handsome man who seems to turn up every time I'm out taking pictures.
Ah, yes, a very handsome man, indeed!

 Stay tuned.  More images from Spring Grove tomorrow.

I think the fall color is later this year than usual. We spent last Wednesday at Fort Benjamin Harrison State Park, and the colors were glorious.

Have a lovely day!

It looks like a place suitable both for the living and the dead: headstones but also lakes and trees.
There are famous cemeteries in the world that are very photographed places, not only because of the prominent people buried there and green landscape, but also because of works of art that have been erected near the graves (Novodevichi in Moscow, Pere Lachaise in Paris).
