September 1985, sorry about crappy frame, the picture has moved around rather a lot, and I have no idea where the original is............ :unsure:

Although a WW2 memorial, I like this one. It is the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge in Scotland. This was one of the photos I took on my first visit, with high winds and rain. The second visit yielded sun, and lots of it! However, I think the rain makes this picture. I played around with it to add to the atmospheric feel but the reduction in size to get it onto the forum has taken some of that feel away.

Its

The German Military Cemetery, Glencree Co. Wicklow

I stumbled across it whilst there a couple of years ago.

Its mostly WW2 but there are 6 WW1 POWs who died in Ireland.

I have had a painting of this image done by a friend, without the real people in it of course. It is a very haunting painting, the miost 0on the day it was taken was quite surreal

This image taken at Vimy in the mist is my favorite and has been painted for me by a friend. The painting is quite haunting and captures this atmosphere

Marina,

The superimposed pictures work very well for presentations at talks etc.

Here's another from a broody Tyne Cot:

I arrived on this part of the forum by chance. Superb photographs. The one,s that you use for presentations Derek are excellent. I have used one as a desk top wallpaper.

I also liked Tony's (Cox) Picture three were was that taken ???.

Thanks to all of you who have contributed to this section.

I am visiting Ypres and the Somme in May this year and will be taking my digital camera, so watch this space.

Cheers

Paul

And then - the serious answer. The photo below (currently my avatar) was taken in late 1989 (October), at Vimy. It shows Mrs Broomfield whilst pregnant with daughter number 1 (Emily), so I guess it illustrates the things that mean most - the family and the Great War. You see - I do have a sentimental side.

Not got many, but these are the ones I like the most.

I took this one kind of by accident. I didn't have a pen handy to write down the inscription on the cross, so I took a pic, its a little different anyway.

I know its off centre, they were repairing one side of the memorial so I was trying to dodge the scaffholding.

I have just stumbled onto this thread and have thoroughly enjoyed all the photographic efforts by all the contributors.

I was most taken by Aurel's superb photo of Artillery Wood as it has been my uncle's home since 1925 when his remains were recovered after his sacrifice at The Battle of Mount Sorrel.

For someone who has yet to tour the battlefields, this is the next best thing, a virtual tour.

Keep up the great work and thank you all for your efforts.

Bill
