The Woodland cemetery, Stockholm.
This is a rather unique place. It is a cemetery, but it is also natural beauty in abundance. You can walk there for hours, it´s huge, and the beauty is everywhere.
This early morning recently gave me the most fantastic light, creating unusual clarity and crispness.
It is one of three UNESCO World Heritages in Stockholm.
The following is from the Stockholm site Capitol of Scandinavia:
A place of sublime beauty and poetry. Created over a period of a quarter century (1915-1940) on about 250 acres of pine-covered boulder ridge under the direction of the famous modernist architects Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz.
Considered one of the most important works of the modernists, it evokes a Nordic philosophy on nature, life, and death. There are also a number of beautiful chapels and a visitors center. The Woodland Cemetery is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1994.

whilst the image appears a touch underexposed the final effect has resulted in an interesting and attractive image with saturated colours and very pleasant reflections,

a wonderful presentaion of this interesting scenery. Your photo has an instant appeal and then the longer we look at it the more we discover in this simple composition and tranquil view. The quiet setting is full of surprises and attractive details. The light and the colours have a unique quality that becomes even more effective when we learn what this place is about. The sense of depth is superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

J'aime l'effet dramtique de la composition, la belle courbe de la colline et le superbe reflet. Belle lumière.

Svepande linjer i denna ytterst eleganta komposition. Bearbetningen av bilden ger ett mycket konstnärligt intryck. Det råder onekligen en mycket speciell stämning i den här bilden, en hel del nostalgi kanske.

A cemetery that is UNESCO listed! Now that's something you don't see every day! And judging from your photo, I can see why it is. As you say, the photo evokes feelings of peace and well-being. Hopefully this beauty and tranquillity gives the bereaved some solace.

compositionwise it is great and you got the most out of the huge potential the landscape offers you. i find the treatment here a bit "exaggerated" but this is a matter of personal taste, as i see most members liked it.

Nice mood on this image, the cold colors are great for this kind of subject ;)
Maybe the post treatment is a little hard in the sky creating a halo above the trees...
But it's a nice and suddle composition
