April 4: Skogskyrkogården 2

It's a huge place.

The Chapel of the Resurrection.

The gap between the portico and the building shows that they are slightly misaligned.

4412

The long axis back toward the Holy Cross chapel.

4416

There are a lot of these interesting changes in level in the woodland parts of the cemetery.

The back side of the chapel.

All the chapels were closed, it turned out. This was all we could see inside the Chapel of the Resurrection.

4425

Water-catch stones.

A detail from the waiting building (that's a clumsy term, but I'm not sure what a more accurate one would be) across the yard from the chapel.

The waiting building is semicircular.

Here's the back side of it.

On the way back north, looking back toward the Chapel of the Resurrection.

That's a rather taller hedge than I'd ever seen before, I do believe.

4456

Moving along toward Almhöjden.

4458

Back across toward the Holy Cross chapel.

Almhöjden.

4467

It's one of the subtlest prospect/refuges I've seen; the feeling of refuge is only suggested by the low walls.

4474

The crematorium by the Holy Cross chapel, and the columbaria.

4475

The steps down from Almhöjden on the other side.

And from the hill across. Their steepness grows as one descends.

4487

Looking back to the entrance from the same hill.

Rodential tunnels on the side of the hill.

Back at the metro station.

The train's decoration was good for snapping one out of a cemeterial mindset.
