A sombre celebration to those killed in the First World War, the Canadian monument at Vimy Ridge. A sentiment of the future with the young child in yellow. New life on old graves.
With the inclusion of the young lady gives so much
drama to the image Ron.
A thought provoking image, Ron.
A very sad mood to this image Ron. Well taken for emotion.
A great monument, well taken shot.
A place that I know well, my great uncle fought there. Easter Sunday, 9th April 1917, 'the best scrap that ever I was in' he said in a letter home while recovering from being shot in the face.
I like the way you have seen this, the composition carries the tension between looking up in hope and looking down in sorrow. There's a good Wikipedia article here, scroll down the page and it includes an explanation of the symbolism of the sculptures.
The child adds poignancy, I would get rid of the bit of figure creeping in on the right.
Thank you Moira, interesting information !!
A grand tribute.
A great pov...love the yellow clad figure ...great shot
love the angle........very effective
Monumental. The figure adds the scale, and a very imposing perspective, Ron.
Crikey Ron, you don't half get about don't you !
A very moving monument Ron. My great uncle was killed just a few miles away.
Can keep up with all the places you go Ron
Thank you all!!!!
An amazing monument and dramatic angle
