A Dreaded Sunny Day

A photograph of the iron gates and archway of the cemetery for the abandoned ghost town of Retlaw, Alberta, Canada, with golden yellow prairie grass, barbed-wire fence and blue sky above.

Iron gates and archway of the cemetery for the abandoned hamlet of Retlaw in southwestern Alberta. Fans of The Smiths will recognize the lyric I cribbed for the title. For the curious: “Retlaw” is “Walter” spelled backwards [source: Wikipedia].

This photograph was featured in the “Eye on Alberta” section of the November 2013 issue of Alberta Views magazine.
