Some Corner ......

By davidhu
....of a foreign field that is for ever England. Thanks for the kind comments on my last upload and thanks to Brian for the lines from Rupert Brooke which I've incorporated into the title for this one. It's a simple row of headstones that caught my eye under the shade of the trees in Ploegstreet Wood.

Thanks for looking.

One of your very best Dave.

Grass and stone and a splash of red. Simple but highly effective, and what's the significance (if any) of the missing stones down towards the end of the row?

You should be very pleased with this one.

Reminds me of the visit my son & I made to my uncle's grave outside Brussels, huge places with so many lives lost, almost overwhelming in their scale. You caught this very nicely Dave, good lines leading off, and the splash of red in the foreground works very nicely, probably what caught your eye...

Tremendous use of perspective - the semi-endless row disappearing in the distance.
Not sentimental but powerful. A tribute in itself?

Poignant, the futility of war. Perhaps it is nessecary David. Ron.

Thanks for the kind comments guys. Dave(U), there is a reason for the gap. They discovered that the bodies were French soldiers and so they were moved to their own cemetery.

A good shot, with feeling.
I notice that they were Canadian soldiers.

Superb composition, I appreciate the way the red geraniums on the right balance the end of the row on the left. This has a similar sense of dignified respect to yesterday's, but now we are aware of individual lives. Thanks for this.

Beautiful image with the strong perspective and the geranium breaking the severity.

Your use of repeats and the placement of the flowers make this a very special image David. Well done

Wonderfully composed. Makes one wonder about the geraniums, obviously some descendants still care. That is reassuring.

Somebody still remembers poor Private G. Ireland. How much Europe has changed for the better since the dark days of the early part of the 20th century. John
