Cemetery in Livingston,Montana and a 180* view of Livingston from atop my hill

180 degrees view looking south into the gap that leads into Paradise Valley and then on to the
Yellowstone National Park.  In the third frame from the left where the mountains break and the clouds
are the heaviest, the snow sits all winter long and is like a wind tunnel....brrrrrrrrrrr!

I spotted this cemetery a few weeks ago and wanted to photograph it as I knew it had lots of cool gravestones. Here is my work on a cold semi wet Sunday.

The names in the middle are a little blur was it a ghost or some rain on my lens?

I love this headstone. For one it is a Japanese American that died fighting and flying fighter jets
in the Korean War. I can imagine this soon after WW2 this fellow was trying very hard
to be recognized as a good American....he died in this cause.

The most potent stones were the ones of the small children and infants like this one of the six month old baby

This one is hard to read but it was for a nine year old girl

Husband and wife

A sheep, horse, snow and mountains....very Montanaish!

I really like these two rock gravestones.

I believe that this lady was probably killed in the far East during the Japanese occupation...
