*The Jefferson Barracks Military Cemetery is twenty miles south of St. Louis Missouri, on the west bank of the Mississippi River. It is an amazing awe inspiring location to me. I always have conflicting emotions when I visit the cemetery. Sadness for all the loss, elation that so many willingly gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. This is an attempt to create a mood image of this wonderful cemetery. I did the selective color to try to capture the feelings I experience when I visit this place.
