Good Friday and what came after

(Better late than never) The cross up on Cobden Edge makes a dramatic image against the sky. Even though it was a sunny day the dark clouds picture the Bible narrative that tells how darkness came over the land at the moment Jesus let his life go. Its a custom in Marple for large numbers of people from the local churches to walk up the hill to the cross on Good Friday afternoon.

And then, in the context of it being Easter, flowers and blossom are pictures of the new life coming in the resurrection that followed.
