Very nice visual, I love the contrast, but sad to see all those crosses!
Thank you. I always find it so hard to convey the emotions, it’so so overwhelming.
10/16/11 ~ Congrats!!! Your work has been featured in PA Photographers on Vacation ~ Keep up the great work!!!
Thanks for the feature. Much appreciated.
Very solemn image. Many Americans died so that this world could be free of the darkness that was taking over it. Beautiful shot!!!
Thank you so much for your comment. IIt’s not easy expressing in one single image the emotions one feels in this place.
I wouldn’t have been able to hold a camera steady enough. :(( My Father – God rest his soul – was wounded in Ste. Mere Eglise early morning 06 Jun 1944.
Was he evacuated to England? Did he go back and fight to the end of the war? I hope he had stories to pass on, many vets did not want to talk about their experiences My dad was a POW in Poland and Germany for 5 years, always refused to talk much about it.
LOTS of stories, Claude. ..The group of planes Dad (Claudius, btw) was in missed their original drop zone and they jumped INTO Ste. Mere Eglise – occupied by German troops. It was a turkey shoot for the Germans. By the time Dad hit the ground, he was already out of grenades and was on the 2nd magazine of his sub-machine gun. He hit a hedgerow right on the edge of the town and broke his wrist rolling down it. A medic stopped – but only long enough to wrap about 2 pounds of tape around Dad’s wrist. He fought on that morning and day – liberating the 1st town in Europe. :))
Thanks for the story. We were with the Rangers in 1994 for the 50th Anniversary. You can see it all at dday50.com
