Lines of war

By Cookie_Monster  
Went to Washington DC for the day yesterday.
Visited Arlington National Cemetery again. I always feel it puts things in perspective and belonging to one of the 'losing' nations this kind of public grieve and display of military involvement is very unfamiliar to me.
Nonetheless a very touching place.
John F. Kennedy and his brothers Robert and Edward are buried here.
And even though it is a 'sight' to be visited by tourists there are still funerals held on a daily basis. Very sad.

For everyone that doesn't know about Arlington:
Arlington National Cemetery, in Arlington County, Virginia, directly across the Potomac River from the Lincoln Memorial, is a United States military cemetery beneath whose 624 acres (253 ha) have been laid casualties, and deceased veterans, of the nation's conflicts beginning with the American Civil War, as well as re-interred dead from earlier wars.
It was established during the Civil War on the grounds of Arlington House, which had been the estate of the family of Confederate general Robert E. Lee's wife Mary Anna (Custis) Lee, a great-granddaughter of Martha Washington. More

The wider shot in v2 for me. I like the way the sky suits the image of the gravestones.Smile
