A quiet walk

These pictures were taken at London's Highgate Cemetery. You can only visit the older West Cemetery on a tour so there is no one around except the people you came in with, this creates the most peaceful silence. I luckily went on a amazingly sunny day so every thing seemed highlighted by the rays of sunlight shining through the trees above. 
One of my Favorite parts of the cemetery is the Egyptian avenue which leads on to the Circle of Lebanon (so called because there is the most amazing Lebanon tree growing out the centre of the tombs). It looks like a set from an Indiana Jones Movie. 
It is an incredibly beautiful place which i recommend to everyone.
