My shots of the awful thick smoke choking up the area. Hope no one has been hurt by this.

Taken on the last Sunday of the festival using 20sec exposures at F18 to truly capture the glow and movement of the rides as they lit up the night.

Photo-Journal: Battle of the Ardennes Tour Part 2

Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery & Memorial

The final resting place of nearly 8000 American soldiers who fought in World War II.

Over looking the beautiful countryside you may never see a more immaculate tribute to the fallen with its perfect symmetrical design and open peaceful space.

Photo-journal: Battle of the Ardennes Tour Part 1

Wiki/Remembrance Sunday

In memory to all who gave so much.

This year we took a trip to Belgium to visit the key sights of the Battle of the Bulge also known as the “Battle of the Ardennes”. It was a powerful trip to say the least, to visit the graves, memorials and towns that held some of the bloodiest battles in World War 2. To find the trenches softly reclaimed by nature in what felt like an enchanted forests in Foy left me wondering how it could have been a part or the dreaded Siegfried Line. To think soldiers were hiding down in these dug outs to avoid gun fire and bombardment from shelling brought us a very different perception on how they lived throughout the campaign. It was quite a chilling image against what was to me one of the most peaceful and calming places I had every seen in my life. Over the next few weeks I shall be posting many of the images I took during our 4 day tour through the Ardennes. Thank you and enjoy.
