Image one has been very well composed and captured from a good point of view allowing you to capture the structure of the dam and the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Whilst images two and three are a reminder of those men who put their lives on the line in what was a crucial part of the Second World War.

Thanks for sharing Richard

Excellent images with a splendid narration.
V1 is beautiful Richard, nicely composed with some lovely reflections and blue sky. V2 and V3 are a lovely tribute to those brave men.

V1 is a brilliant view and composition is excellent. V2 & V3 make sure we do not forget all that happened and they too are recorded so well. Excellent work Richard.

Version 1 is a well composed image.

A now passed on friend of my wife had a relative who was on the mission and he survived although it effected him badly for the rest of his life.

Hard to imagine what the pilots on these and other missions went through.

I know exactly where you were stood, about 10 minutes drive from my house, the kettle was on. Great shot, I have never done one this well. I was there myself on the Friday; if you'd have hung around a bit I would have waved, or splashed you as I drove by. Really is a magic shot.

Hope you went to the cafe, it was cold last Wednesady, you needed a hot drink.

A dam with fine British fortress accents. [ How to beautify a dam]. The whole composition is a delight. Good to see we continue to remember and honour those who provided us with freedom. TG
