    Really nice! i tried to take this shot a couple years ago, but didn’t like any to put up. The flag is so nicely lit and the sun setting is spetacular with the silluette of the soldiers is excellent. Love it!

  • thanks mary.. i actually took many many MANY many shots of this and just kept walking around and circling it – taking it from every angle – then i saw what the sun was doing thru the sculpture and basically clicked and hoped for the best :-)
