Eternally disgruntled

I spotted this Celtic Cross from across the cemetery so beautiful¬† catching the last rays of sun before it slipped behind the hills and let the night creep in And yet – in every image it seems a scowling, sneering scold pity it’s sullen companion who has neither means of respite nor escape.
