  1. I remember first hearing the word Mausoleum as a child - it frightened me. Such a colourful word don't you think?

    Thanks so much

  3. It's such an attractive piece of property with all that green grass and the lovely wildflowers. The mausoleum must have been well built to survive longer than the rest of the buildings.

  5. Isn't it strange how some people laud the dead and house them in such splendour? What a place to come across on a hike;-)

  15. Your blog is such a treat for me. each time I see in my sidebar you have posted a near shot, I cannot wait to see it. This capture is lovely. Wish I were there to see it myself. Maybe one of these days I will get to Scotland.

  16. The green in this shot is amazing, and despite the bright color, this still comes off as a very melancholy shot. Awesome job!
