The Unknown Soldier

By damienvc    
A UK soldier, exhausted from combat, can't bear to watch the medical team trying to resuscitate his colleague out of shot in the back of a helicopter en route to the field hospital.

This was taken with a chest mounted Canon Ixus in Afghanistan. I know it's not the sharpest shot in the world, but I think that adds to it.

Hi Damien
As you say! Not the sharpest capture, but it tells a story of the conflict you are going through, I have taken many ariel photographs from fixed wing aircraft and helicopters in my professional days and know how hard it can be to stop the camera shake, well done mate, keep safe.

Regards

Trev.
