Port Gamble Cemetery

The highest point in Port Gamble is occupied by the town cemetery.  I was perplexed as to why the place with the nicest views was given over to a graveyard.  Apparently, this is deliberate.  Not sure whether the best views as appreciated once underground but it is a nice spot to spend eternity.  We wandered around looking at some of the graves with headstones covering a variety of styles and some being easily legible while others were heavily weathered.  The texture on some of the stones appealed to me quite a bit and I spent some time looking at how to reflect that in an image.
