Tucked away under the trees and off on a side path in Cologne's Melaten Friedhof is a Grim Reaper sculpture by August Schmiemann. I had seen images of it before and searched for this grave marker during previous walks through the cemetery, but never encountered it until my last trip there. Like many wonderful discoveries, I stumbled upon it when I least expected to.
I've posted before about Melaten Friedhof. Here are some more photographs of one of my favorite Cologne locations, this time taken in early spring.
