As we creaked out of New Orleans on the Amtrak Crescent train, we happened to stop beside this massive cemetery just as the sun was crawling over the horizon and flooding through these above ground crypts. All I can say is – hauntingly beautiful.

Recently I took a trip down to New Orleans for a wedding, and subsequently fell in love with this lively city. I was aching to visit the above ground crypts and vaults that New Orleans is known for, but unfortunately I didn’t have time while I was there.

We weren’t supposed to stop beside the cemetery, but I’m glad I could catch this stunning sight. AND I even had time to take HDR photos! Was it because I tweeted Amtrak disgruntled that I couldn’t film from the rear car of the train? I’d like to think so.
