Nordre Kirkegård – a photo essay

30th of January was a really cold and snowy day in Horsens. But I wanted to take a walk and take photos for my first photo essay for this blog “Horsens and Beyond”.

So wearing 4 shirts, woollen pantyhose, pants, rain pants, a large coat, large boots, scarf and gloves I walked to the cemetery nearby my home, Nordre Kirkegård (The Northern Cemetery).

The Northern Cemetery was opened in 1835, and it is still being used.

The main entrance to the cemetery from the street Kirkegårdsallé.


The winter light at the cemetery is soft and full of atmosphere.


A gravestone is covered in snow.


Trees at the cemetery.


Even the angles can’t avoid the snow.


A holly branch and snow-covered gravestones.

This was some photos from my walk in Nordre Kirkegård.

You can go visit the cemetery in Kirkegårdsallé right here:
