The Funeral Cortège by jamibann

The Funeral Cortège

As a follow-on from yesterday's image - this was my view of Crathie Kirk (where the Queen worships when in residence at Balmoral) when I was in the graveyard and heard the bagpipes. You can just see the funeral cortège making its way down the hill.
..you are certainly out in the sticks today.

The lonely church makes a poignant metaphor for the loneliness that death leaves behind it.

Love how you have done this in B&W. It adds a somber mood.

It looks gorgeous there. Such a beautiful situation. Feels like that cortege should be drawn by horses somehow.....

It is a lovely place to rest your days.....I have never been but my daughter went to her friends daughters wedding here a couple of years ago...Jo & Barry’ Heather from the garage who married the vicars son.....I saw the photos & it looked lovely. Would love to go over your side one day instead of the west coast.

Good capture of the clouds and the patches of light and dark.

Awesome! Like a scene in Lord of the Rings where the elves fled middle-Earth.

Such a striking area, with the hills and towers, and imagining the sound of bagpipes.

@happypat Yes, I knew Jo & Barry's daughter had married Ruaridh McKenzie, but never knew the ceremony had been in Crathie Kirk. Rev McKenzie is the minister at both Braemar and Crathie Churches. I've only once been inside Crathie Kirk - it's a beautiful wee church and I can imagine the ceremony must have been very special, all the more so when your dad is the minister! The Manse is not far from where I was standing. When are you coming to visit?!
