Appreciation Day celebrates life in the cemetery

“Appreciation Day is a celebration of life in the cemetery,” Glenwood walk on the rail PN photosaid Sandy Latchford, chairperson of Glenwood Cemetery in Picton, welcoming a goodly crowd to the recent event.

During this year’s activities, County photographer Phil Norton led a nature photography outing and included basic DSLR, pocket camera and phone camera instruction. Participants were to explore the rich floral, forest and wetland habitats at the cemetery and along Marsh Creek.

The photographers also captured the dedication of a monument to Kate the swan goose who was killed in the spring. The words on the stone read: “Thanks for the Memories, Kate”. The new Kate also lost the love of her life last year, to a hungry fox.

Norton hosts photography outings and workshops for photographers, artists and nature-lovers.

Below, an appreciative look at Glenwood from the lenses of Phil Norton and the some of the photo tour participants.
