Great photos Rumors, I've always found cemeteries to be very peaceful places, this one looks really peaceful.

I've always had this weird fondness for cemeteries, I find them very peaceful and it kinda feels good being at one.

Notre-Dame-des-Neiges is certainly an old-style cemetery, not typical for North America. And it's obvious it's a Catholic cemetery - with all the rich tombstones, "Baroque" decorations and many statues. Cemeteries in Catholic countries here in Europe are very similar

When the leaves fall off the trees, I'll photograph it again it.... looks rather scary then.

Those are wicked shots I'll have to check that cemetery out and take some photos of my own next time I'm in Montreal.

I think it is for an urn of ashes... or maybe a really, really small person being buried vertically!
