Thank you Steve, it's a day here in Oz that we remember the fallen Anzac's, all the Aussie diggers and all the vets that gave the ultimate for us to have our freedom...A fitting tribute to all the vets Wally! Exceptional shot & Processing!
Hey thanks Doug, very much appreciated as I just try to find better ways to do the same thing...Wow, Wally, great processing! Love that sky and your shallow DOF really allows the banner to be crisp and sharp against it. Beautiful!
I'm feeling like your images have just graduated to another level, Wally. You are just getting better and better!
And no, I will not forget.
In 1916, the Rev Basil Ashcroft held the first Anzac Day commemoration in the Tinui church, before leading villagers to the top of Mt Maunsell, or Tinui Taipo as it is known locally, to erect a permanent memorial.
That cross became the first Anzac memorial in New Zealand and stood on the hilltop for nearly 50 years before an aluminium cross replaced it in 1965. Forty-eight people from the village died in the two world wars.
Thank you very much Geoff, and also for supplying that link as well...Nice image Wally -as usual from you!!
For the Americans, here's a little bit of Anzac history from where I am:
Thanks Alan, appreciate it and glad you really liked it...That sky is phenomenal! I love the contrast as well.
