On All Saints's Day, people throughout Poland lay flowers, light candles and lanterns and visit the graves of deceased family members and friends in cemeteries. Cemeteries are lit by many hundreds of these candles and at night they can often be seen glowing from long distances.

This is so very touching and beautiful. Also a most welcome change for me [and I believe to some other Europeans too] from Halloween to the local tradition. Thanks, dear friend, and congratulations. My first choice in LE's b&w challenge [that is if I am asked ...]

Interesting to learn about this old tradition Ewa and you have a fine photo here.
Splendid B/w tones and the candle light really glows..

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
